Save Our Sonics president Brian Robinson is hesitant to use the word rally to describe an event that will be held June 16 outside the downtown US Federal Courthouse, however, the grass-roots group is asking fans to arrive at noon as a show of support for the city's case against the basketball team, which begins earlier that day.
Robinson is unsure how many people will attend so he's trying to keep expectations low.
SOS has asked several former Sonics to attend including Xavier McDaniel, Detlef Schrempf and Gary Payton. The federal courthouse is located at 1010 Fith Ave.
More details will be released in the next couple of weeks.
In March, the group organized a rally at the state Capitol in Olympia which drew about 250 supporters.
***UPDATE/CORRECTIONS*** The rally will begin at 11:30 and the address is 700 Stewart NOT 1010 Fifth Ave.
And just to be technical, Brian Robinson is the co-founder of SOS along with Steven Pyeatt.
