It'll be the same as when every other team in NBA history has changed locations.
And the Oklahoma City Thunder are the same franchise that was the Seattle SuperSonics, so I'm not sure what "claiming" has to do with anything when they're the same team. Just like the Kings are the same team that was the Rochester/Cincinnati Royals, so all records transfer with the franchise. As this isn't even the first time the Kings/Royals franchise will have moved if this indeed happens, I'm unsure as to why there's any confusion. When Minnesota got another NBA franchise after losing the Lakers, they didn't act like nothing happened and the Lakers never left, did they?
