Full text of comments from NBA commissioner David Stern on Kings (Seattle and Sacramento).

On NBA relocation committee's unanimous vote against relocating Kings to Seattle and what he expects from full Board of Governors vote

"The committee has to do a report, they have to circulate it to the board and we're planning on a board meeting on May 15. We'll see, I can't predict. I didn't see a unanimous vote coming but they decided as strong as the Seattle bid was, and it was very strong, there's some benefit that should be given to a city that has supported us for so long, and has stepped up to contribute to build a new building as well."

Possibility of expansion

"You know, all I can say is that discussion will have to wait for [future] commissioner [Adam] Silver to oversee. Right now, expansion is not on the agenda. I would never say never. It doesn't make a lot of sense unless we know what the new TV deal is."
