Arena Memorandom of Understanding expected next week

Buried in Steve Kelley's column in which he suggests that the NBA should force the sale of the Sacramento Kings to Seattle arena developer Chris Hansen he, Kelley, notes the timeline of the Memorandum of Understanding.

Recently, Hansen has been working with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and King County executive Dow Constantine on a Memorandum of Understanding that could be ready as early as next week.
After that, the city and county councils will vote on the arena proposal, probably around the middle of June.

Some nice thoughts from Steve Kelley, but the experience of our recient past makes me think that a forced sale is little more than wishful thinking, no matter how much sense it makes.

Anything is possible, we should consider it all.

It feels like the MOU will be more of its own product that is in a more developed form than the larger proposal that would include the details of the entire proposal.
We shall see.
