Seattle may get an NBA team sometime in the future after all.

The Seattle City Council on Monday voted to approve costs associated with renovating Key Arena, where the Seattle Supersonics once played. The council voted overwhelmingly in favor of the project in a 7-1 decision.

The project is said to close $600 million by itself, and there will be a host of other fees and project features as well, per the city council's Twitter account.

This is an enormous step for the city of Seattle. The fan base is said to be one of the best in the country, and the fact that they don't have an NBA team is unfathomable.

Various investors have tried to buy current NBA teams and move them to Seattle over the years, but have been unsuccessful. A new arena could make it easier for a franchise to move there sooner rather than later.

Also in the fold is a possible NHL team. And again, because Seattle is such a great sports town, a professional hockey franchise would make sense.

Having a sports arena that can house both an NBA and NHL team is clearly important to the local government, which should say a lot about what the community as a whole thinks of the matter.

There's a long process ahead, but the city council cleared a major hurdle with their decision. Below is the full video of the moment they voted.
