Judge Marsha Pechman excused former KeyArena manager Jyo Singh and concluded the first day of the trial.
"That's all we have time for today," she said. "Let's talk about what's happening tomorrow and are we ahead or are we behind."
Attorney Paul Lawrence said the city is "about where we thought we would be. It's taking longer than expected because of cross examination."
The city will call Sonics co-owner and chairman Clay Bennett to the stand Tuesday.
The city may submit an audio video clip from Sonics co-owner Aubrey McClendon, who may also appear in person, Lawrence said. The city will also call experts Andrew Zimbalist, Sonics CEO Danny Barth, expert Todd Meneberg and expert Lon Hatamiya.
