CROWN PRINCES? Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms on Tuesday confirmed that he “recently met with representatives of a National Basketball Association team about moving that team to his city.” In Sacramento, Tony Bizjak noted Sessoms “declined to name the team.” The NBA Kings “reissued a statement Tuesday saying they have been approached by numerous cities interested in landing a team, but declined to comment further.” City of Virginia Beach Media & Communications Manager Marc Davis said, "The mayor said the team is interested; they think it is a good market." But Davis added that Sessoms and team reps “have not discussed what it would take financially to move the team to Virginia Beach” (SACRAMENTO BEE, 11/14).
