In Houston for the NBA All-Star weekend, KING 5's Chris Daniels talked with former NBA great Shaquille O'Neal about the possible move of the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.

O'Neal was surprised to hear the deal is not done.

"If it does go through I'll be sad for the Sacramento fans, it was a great crowd, I loved the Maloof family," he said.

"But you know they have to understand business at times... also be sad for Mayor Kevin Johnson, you know he tried to get the new arena, tried to get things going, however Seattle has always been a great crowd, you know they lost their franchise and they will be obtaining a new one and you know it will be a great situation."

Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson continues to say he will have a competing offer.

A decision isn't likely to come until sometime in April.
