The only team name I wouldn't put back, would be Timberwolves back to Lakers - just becasue L.A. people would freak.
There is an amusing thread at boards.sportslogos.com about the exact same thing. You've almost echoed the thoughts of some on there verbatim.
Expansion seems like the most plausible way of getting the sonics to Seattle. I would mind the Cincinnati Royals either.
