TIME FOR A CHANGE: In Sacramento, Ailene Voisin wrote Kings President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie “has to go, and he has to take the entire basketball operations staff with him.” If the Maloofs are “remotely interested in sustaining the Kings in Sacramento, tabling the new arena vs. renovated arena conversations at least for a few more days/months/years, they need to issue one sure, swift, franchise-shaking statement.” Voisin: “Incrementally and undeniably, both by inertia and repeated mistakes, Petrie has stripped the once-proud franchise of its passion, its identity, its collective soul. ... It was a great run while it lasted, and Petrie ran a great operation for a while. But it's over” (SACRAMENTO BEE, 11/20).
