The passionate city’s supporters have new optimism after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver hints about expansion intentions.

The league is now looking at new prospects after overcoming COVID-19 challenges, possibly bringing back the team that once won people over.

In an intriguing NBA story, a young and explosive Kevin Durant once wore the Seattle Supersonics uniform and made an everlasting impression with 20.3 points a game.

Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden became three superstars as the group developed into the Oklahoma City Thunder. They took the league by storm when they played as a team, inspiring awe among Seattle’s fans and advancing to the NBA Finals in 2012.

Adam Silver said, “We will turn to expansion once those new media deals are done,” and added “It’s not a sure thing but, as I’ve said before, I think it’s natural that organizations grow over time,” an article from sportskeeda.com mentioned.

Its thriving sports scene, hosting of the NBA All-Star Games, and enthusiastic support of the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces have the city humming enthusiastically. A basketball team in Las Vegas would be a surefire hit with fans and a fascinating addition to the NBA landscape as the city that invented gambling celebrates its passion for sports.

The NBA floor hasn’t changed in nearly 20 years, and no new competitors have entered the arena to stake a claim. Basketball fans have eagerly awaited new challengers’ entry ever since the Charlotte Bobcats, the league’s final addition, debuted in 2004.

As the suspense grows, fans and pundits are left wondering when the NBA will introduce its newest club, opening a thrilling new chapter in the game’s history and fueling competition on a never-before-seen scale.

Silver said, “We will look at [Las Vegas]. There’s no doubt there’s enormous interest in Seattle. That’s not a secret. There are other markets that have indicated interest,” and he further mentioned, “For the people who hear or read about this interview, we are not engaged in that process now. We’re not taking meetings right now with any potential groups,” an article from sportskeeda.com shared
