Muckleshoot Tribe eyes relocation of Sonics

The Muckleshoot Tribe of Washington is drafting a proposal to relocate the Seattle Supersonics to tribal land.

Tribal leaders met with Sonics owner Clay Bennett, who is considering a move of the NBA team. Although no decisions have been made, the tribe would build a new arena in Auburn, where the tribe owns a racetrack.

The tribe bought the Emerald Downs track in 2002. The 185-acre is not yet in trust but the tribe has submitted an application to the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
