NEW YORK -- Clay Bennett, the man who moved Seattle's NBA team to Oklahoma, could have a big role in deciding whether professional basketball returns to the city.

Bennett serves as chairman of the NBA's Relocation Committee, and he's not showing his cards.

"I think very highly of Seattle, and hopefully that one day things will work out and Seattle can have a team once again, and we'll see how it goes," he said Thursday during the NBA owners meeting in New York.

Asked directly about Seattle's chances for landing a franchise, Bennett dodged, saying he needed to get to an appointment with an eye doctor.
