Anything Sonics is red hot in this basketball obsessed city. Robert Swift, a one-time first-round pick lost his home to foreclosure, but seemingly refuses to leave. The new owner now who wanted to hide her identity said it seems like a very sad story and she definitely feel for Mr. Swift. In January she bought the foreclosed home for nearly half of the original price and she thought she knew what she was getting.

The grass outside the home were dotted with cans of beer. A bullet hole cracked the garage window at some point. Water rankles in buckets outside of what was once a multi-million dollar home in a high-end Eastside suburb. Property and court records show that owner was Robert Swift, the Sonics number one draft pick in 2004.

Swift played for Seattle, Oklahoma City, and eventually in Japan. Regardless making a reported $20 million playing studs, Swift’s home fell into foreclosure last summer as shown by the Problem Solvers records.

On Wednesday the media tried to speak with Swift, and a woman who said she was his girlfriend said Swift couldn’t see them because he was asleep after taking pills. On Thursday still there was no answer from Mr. Swift. The new owner’s problem was still the same. She went to court and based on records, Swift has gone past his grace period to vacate.

It was reported that Swift has one final deadline at the end of the month. After that, comes a notification for eviction by force.

The one-time first round pick was a star before on the hardwood. Now the new owner of the house furiously wants the game to end. The new owner said they feel like they’re stuck until Swift moves.

The new owner has filed a summons, the basketball star has one week to respond or the owner say she will go to the King County Sheriff’s Office if the home isn’t vacated.
