SEATTLE - The Seattle Storm reached an agreement with the University of Washington to play 2019 regular-season games at Alaska Airlines Arena while KeyArena undergoes a two-year $700 million renovation.

Co-owner Lisa Brummel characterized the deal as a one-year "trial" and added "assuming it goes well ... we'd like to continue for 2020."

For at least a year, Alaska Airlines Arena becomes the primary site for the Storm, but it's uncertain how many of its 17 regular-season home games will be on campus.

Additionally, there are no guarantees the building will be available if the Storm advances to the postseason.

"We're hopeful we can play there during the playoffs, (but) now you're really running into volleyball season," Brummel said.

"We typically play on days where where volleyball and football haven't played."

Seattle's 2019 schedule will be released along with the WNBA schedule at a later date.
