The final vote by all 30 NBA owners on whether the Sacramento Kings will be sold and moved to Seattle will be held May 15 in Dallas.

The NBA s Relocation Committee voted unanimously last week to recommend against the Kings move. The Finance Committee did not make a recommendation on whether to approve the sale to a Seattle-based ownership group led by Chris Hansen.

At least 23 of the owners must approve the sale, but only 16 need to approve relocation.

Hansen said he still plans to buy the team, despite the Relocation Committee s recommendation.
