Sterling Financial Corp. said Thursday it plans to buy 33 bank branches from Cleveland-based KeyCorp for about $72 million.

The deal includes 21 branches in Washington, 10 in Idaho, and two in Oregon, with deposits of $585 million. The branches, mainly in small cities and towns, would nearly double Sterling's branch network. The deal would boost Sterling's assets by about $400 million, to $2.3 billion.
