Kings Minority Owners Want To See Team Remain In Sacramento
Published February 24, 2011
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? In Sacramento, Dan Morain writes before the Maloofs leave, there is a "matter of the Kings' $67 million debt and other payments to the city." Sacramento leaders "need to make clear that the team cannot move an inch before that money is paid in full." The city also "should put together an ownership group to replace the Maloofs." The "simplest path would be for the new owners to buy the Kings." Failing that, they "could buy one of the NBA's struggling franchises and move it here" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 2/24). Also in Sacramento, Joe Davidson writes, "The possibility of the Kings moving to Anaheim has made it a half-empty, half-full sort of mood across the region." Kings fan Richard Harris: "Why watch the Kings now if they're even considering a move to Anaheim?" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 2/24).
