Seattle City Council Updated On Arena Plans For Possible NBA Kings Move
Published February 26, 2013
ON THE HOME FRONT: In Sacramento, Lillis, Bizjak & Kasler cited Sacramento city officials yesterday as saying that they “aren't starting from scratch in their quest to develop a financing plan for an arena.” But the officials acknowledged in a staff report to the City Council that last year's plan "and all its detail will likely change in this scenario." The City Council “will be asked tonight to give top city officials the go-ahead to begin formal arena negotiations with a private investment group interested in buying the Kings and keeping them in Sacramento.” The council at the moment “still hasn't officially been briefed on whom the city will be negotiating with.” But it is “widely known” that Mayor Kevin Johnson “has been talking to" Penguins co-Owner Ron Burkle and 24-Hour Fitness Founder Mark Mastrov (SACRAMENTO BEE, 2/26).
