The Door for the Sonics to play in Oklahoma City next season is open.

A U.S. District judge has set a trial date for June to decide the fate of the Seattle SuperSonics.

The June date is in between the March date Clay Bennett and the Sonics requested, and the October date requested by the city of Seattle.

The six day trial date leaves open the possibility that the Sonics would have enough time to move their operation to Oklahoma City next season if they win their lawsuit.
