LOCAL GROUP COMING TOGETHER: KXTV-ABC’s Nick Monacelli cited sources trying to keep the Kings in Sacramento as saying that a local ownership group “is forming faster and better than expected.” The source said that the group “could be announced as early as next week.” Johnson “admits big names with deep pockets are being added to the equation.” He said, “There’s not one or two, there’s multiple people that are interested.
