Former Sonics GM Wally Walker makes his pitch for SoDo over KeyArena
SEATTLE - Wally Walker wants to bring the Sonics back to Seattle. The former president and general manager of the team has been part of Chris Hansen’s group trying to build a privately funded arena in the SoDo district since 2011. His ties to the NBA and the Pacific Northwest run deep. He played for the Portland Trail Blazers and the SuperSonics before spending 12 years leading Seattle’s front office.
