On Sunday, Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson announced that he would be selling his franchise. With a team on the market, citizens of Seattle have to be licking their chops. Ever since losing the SuperSonics, the Emerald City has been dying for another go-around with the NBA.
And who better to lead the charge than beloved Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson? On Monday he took to Twitter pushing for a Hawks migration to Seattle.

Time will only tell if Seattle eventually gets another NBA franchise, but with Wilson actively campaigning for it, you have to like the city’s chances.
