The Hornets recently announced a new lease deal with the State for the New Orleans Arena committing the team to the city through 2014. However, the lease allows the team to terminate if the Hornets don't draw an average paid attendance of 14,735 through the end of next season. Since that hasn't happened and isn't likely to happen, let's start thinking about where the team will be located when the 2009 season opens. Can anyone say Seattle Hornets? How about a franchise swap with the Sonics so the Hornets end up in OKC and Shinn ends up in Seattle. Ok, Seattle is still a loser but at least it has a team.
