Hawes makes no qualms about his position
Spencer Hawes is being booed for maintaining his stance on the Kings possible move to Seattle -- He wants a team in his hometown.
“I won’t make any qualms about where I stand,” Hawes said. “I want to see my hometown get a franchise. There is some confliction but I’m not going to beat around the bush about what my stance is.”
Hawes said it's a bit "hypocritical" considering Seattle lost his hometown Sonics how Sacramento could lose the Kings but said this is business.
"There’s a sale agreement that’s in place there was a pretty big check that was cashed to secure that it goes through," Hawes said. "This is a business and when you agree to sell a business I don’t think it’s necessarily written in any by-laws that you necessarily have the right to match any offer. I don’t know how all the intricacies of this work but I wish the first time around the city of Seattle would have acted like Sacramento did with all the efforts."
