Seattle may be one step closer to getting NBA basketball to return to town.
Investor and hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen revealed in a letter Tuesday that he’s willing to forego public funding and fund a more than $500 million Seattle Arena with private money.
Seattle was home to the Supersonics from 1967 to 2008, when the team moved to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder.
Tuesday’s letter was signed by Hansen and his partners, Wally Walker and Peter & Erik Nordstrom.
Hansen has reportedly already acquired about 12.5 acres in Seattle’s Sodo district for $122.5 million to build the new arena.

There’s nothing quite like coming home from work and finding out that your house was robbed.
DeMarcus Ware now knows this firsthand.
The Denver Broncos linebacker tweeted on Tuesday that he came home following Monday night’s win against the Houston Texans to find that his house had been robbed.
“After a great win, came home to find my house was robbed,” Ware said. “Never about the material things for me but my safety. Thank God for hidden cameras.”
Among this items stolen was Ware’s Super Bowl ring, according to 9news.
Denver Police have released photos of the suspects and a reward is being offered.
