NBA Expansion "Inevitable"

Commissioner Adam Silver Sees NBA Expansion as ”Inevitable”

The Seattle Supersonics may not be a team of the past for much longer.

In a Players’ Tribune interview conducted just a week ago by C.J. McCollum of the Portland Trailblazers, the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver stated that NBA expansion is “inevitable”. The goal is to make it sooner rather than later.

“I think it’s just a question of when the right time is to seriously start thinking about expansion,” said Silver. “I don’t want to put a precise timeline on it, but it’s inevitable at some point that we’ll start looking at the growth of franchises. That’s always been the case in this league, and Seattle will no doubt be on a short list of cities we’ll look at.”

The Supersonics of Seattle entered the NBA back in 1967 and would go onto capture an NBA championship in the 1979 season. The club then relocated in 2008 to Oklahoma City, becoming known as the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With expansion talks gaining real traction, there is real reason for excitement for cities like Seattle who hope to see the NBA return to its market.
