Clay Bennett deposed

Posted by Percy Allen

Paul Lawrence, a K&L Gates attorney representing the city's case against the Sonics, said he flew to Oklahoma City and deposed team chairman Clay Bennett on Wednesday.

He also said the city is seeking to depose NBA Commissioner David Stern, however, the league it attempting to block the subpoena. A hearing in federal court in New York is scheduled for Monday.

You can read Jim Brunner's story here.

Bennett's deposition may prove to be crucial in the city's case to force the team to honor its KeyArena lease through 2010. He likely had to explain the intent in e-mails in which he conversed with members of the ownership group about moving the Sonics to Oklahoma City before a 12-month deadliine after the July 2006 sale of the team.
