While the Seattle SuperSonics could be headed to new digs, another pro sports league is looking to establish a team in the Puget Sound area.
Representatives of the National Lacrosse League were in Tacoma on Wednesday to meet with representatives of the Tacoma Dome, and are looking for a prospective home for a new franchise in the Puget Sound region.

The group also met with KeyArena officials Wednesday afternoon to discuss the possibility of relocating there.

A familiar face in the Seattle sports landscape — former Seattle Seahawks and Sonics front-office executive Bob Whitsitt — is taking the lead locally to secure a lacrosse franchise.

“If you would have asked me five or six years ago, I wouldn’t have known much about lacrosse, but I began following it and just got hooked,” Whitsitt said.
