A post on Twitter Tuesday night had Seattle NBA fans buzzing about the possibility of a team returning to the Emerald City.

Daina Falk, the daughter of NBA player's agent David Falk, tweeted, "So I hear that the Seattle Kings is officially a done deal! The Maloofs finally sold the ailing Sacramento team. #NBA."

Sometime before 6 a.m. Wednesday, the tweet had been deleted. But buzz about a sale fired up again later Wednesday morning when Yahoo! Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski began Tweeting about a deal reached between the Maloofs and Chris Hansen, the leader of a group working to return the NBA to Seattle and build a new sports arena.

Collected here are Tweets from Wojnarowski, KING 5's Chris Daniels, and other reporters working on this story:
