Deal Is Near To Bring NBA's Kings To Seattle


The return of NBA basketball to Seattle appears closer than ever. Investor Chris Hansen announced on Monday that he's reached an agreement with the Maloof family to buy a controlling interest in the Sacramento Kings. The deal still needs formal approval from the NBA’s owners. Meanwhile, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson is hopeful he can keep the team in town. How do you put a number on a pro basketball franchise? We talk with Smith College economist Andrew Zimbalist.

Also this hour: we look at violence and human nature from a spiritual perspective with the The Interfaith Amigos, we consider how gun laws relate to counseling and confidentiality with psychotherapist Joe Guppy, and Michael Fagin joins us with a recommended hike to match the fog and rain.
