Seattle's KeyArena to host National Basketball Association preseason game

The Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings are reportedly going to play the NBA's first game in Seattle at KeyArena since 2008 when the two teams will meet for a preseason contest on October 6, 2018. As part of a plan to bring an National Hockey League and NBA team to Seattle in the future, the Key Arena will be undergoing a massive renovation beginning in October, which means the game will likely be played elsewhere. "Walking around Seattle, they were always passionate about being Sonics fans".

If the game is played in the Tacoma Dome, people will likely chuckle as they walk in the door.

There has not been an National Basketball Association game in Seattle since the SuperSonics' home finale for the 2007-08 season, when they defeated the Mavericks 99-95 April 13, 2008.

The Kings have their own history with Seattle, as the franchise nearly moved to the city a couple of years ago. Durant, 29, was drafted second overall by Seattle in the 2007 National Basketball Association draft and spent the first year of his professional career in the Emerald City.

The Warriors are hosting the game, according to the report, allowing Durant to return to Key Arena for the first time since his rookie campaign in 2007 when he averaged 20.3 points per game after just playing one year of college ball at Texas.

The contract for the game has not yet been signed, but that is considered a formality.
