Seattle Sonics rumors prompt T-shirt sales

OLYMPIA, WA (AP) -

Rumors that an NBA team may soon return to Seattle are good news for an Olympia company that prints T-Shirts.

Media Fly Creative has printed about 1,500 Sonics T-shirts saying "We're Back!"

Owners Ian Bolyard and Dave Vahey told The Olympian they consulted an attorney so the logo is not a copy of the trademark owned by Clay Bennett, who moved the Sonics to Oklahoma City in 2008.

The owners of the Sacramento Kings, the Maloof family, have a signed agreement to sell the franchise to a group that intends to move the team to Seattle and restore the SuperSonics name.

The NBA Board of Governors must approve any sale.
