Cauthen: KC still after NBA or NHL team

I just read City Manger Wayne Cauthen’s comments about the city intensifying its effort to lure an NHL or NBA team to Kansas City over the summer. The Kansas City Business Journal reported that Cauthen told The Central Exchange that the city was waiting for the leagues’ offseasons. Why wait? “They’re not going to give you the time of day” during the season,” Cauthen said. Uh, wait a second, Wayne. The last NBA franchise to move — the Seattle SuperSonics — filed to relocate to Oklahoma City in November. At the start of the season. And Sonics’ owners Clay Bennett had to notify the NBA that he was moving the team in March. So get crackin’.
