The Seattle Flight are a professional men's basketball based out of Lakewood, Washington, approximately forty miles south of Seattle. They are currently members of the International Basketball League and began play in the league in 2013. The team is backed by former Seattle SuperSonics star Shawn Kemp and his wife Marvena. They played their home games at the Pierce College Fort Steilacoom Health Education Center Gymnasium in Lakewood. The team colors of emerald green and gold are to honor their predecessors from the NBA.
This is the second incarnation of the Seattle Flight. The first was a team from an unknown league. Their only identity can be found at a Facebook page created in 2011 and it is uncertain if it is the same franchise.
