    It’s still a long shot the Kings stay in Sacramento — in the end you are asking a bunch of entrepreneurial, rich capitalists to vote against one of their own moving his business to a place he can (theoretically) make more money. It’s hard to get them to vote no. But they may be getting…

  2. Billionaire makes last-minute run to keep Kings in Sacramento

    It’s a Hail Mary. But if you’re going to call a Hail Mary, having a billionaire making the toss helps. That’s what happened in the saga of the Kings potential move out of Sacramento on Thursday. The Maloof brothers, the owners of the Kings, made their case for needing to pack up their franchise and…

  3. Bang the drum slowly: Tonight may be last game in Sacramento

    Ron Artest reacted like a lot of people — he didn’t really want to believe it could happen. When the former Kings star was asked about he and the Lakers heading up to Sacramento for what may well be the final game ever for the Kings in Sacramento, Artest kept saying the move was not…

  4. Kings owners ready to file for move, deaf to fans’ loud cheers

    The atmosphere for the Kings loss to the Thunder Monday night was a throwback. Like about 10 years, when the Kings were contenders and then ARCO Arena was as great a home court advantage as the league had. Complete with cowbells. Kevin Durant said the feeling inside Power Balance Arena Monday reminded him of the…

  5. Sacramento mayor will make final pitch to NBA owners

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    It will be one final, desperate plea from Sacramento that will fall on deaf ears. But it’s going to happen. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has been granted the chance to speak to the NBA Board of Governors — made up of the NBA owners — when they meet April 14-15 in New York, he said…

  6. Anaheim approves $75 million bond to lure Kings to city

    The Maloof brothers now have done pretty much everything but drive the moving trucks up to the Kings offices. Tuesday night one of the final hurdles in the path of the Kings relocating to Anaheim was cleared when the Anaheim City Council unanimously approved a lease for an NBA tenant in the Honda Center and…

  7. Sacramento tells Anaheim to back off, Maloofs get ticked

    As always, it’s about the money. It’s always about the money. The latest noise in the seemingly inevitable move of the Kings out of Sacramento to Anaheim is that the Sacramento City Manager sent a letter, vaguely threatening legal action, if Anaheim did not back off its efforts to lure the Kings. The Sacramento Bee…

  8. Report: Lakers, Clippers lack votes to block Kings Anaheim move

    The Honda Center in Anaheim is 34 miles away from Staples Center, which means it may take 30 minutes and it may take two-and-a-half hours to drive there on Los Angeles freeways. But it’s close enough that the Lakers and Clippers do not want the Kings moving to Anaheim. It just appears they can’t do…

  9. Anaheim mayor says city excited, “closer” to landing Kings

    As expected, the Anaheim City Council postponed action Tuesday night on a plan to float bonds that would make upgrades to the Honda Center — redoing the locker rooms and building a practice facility among other things — to lure the Sacramento Kings to town. But for the first time an Anaheim city official spoke…

  10. Some Anaheim residents protest city spending money to get Kings

    Anaheim is like virtually every other city in the nation right now — the recession has meant budget deficits and cuts. Specifically, Anaheim is running a $10-$11 million deficit and has depleted its financial reserves down from $45 million to about $11 million, the Orange County Register reports. On April 12, the Anaheim City Council…

  11. Kings move update: Anaheim may float bonds to upgrade arena

    When the Maloof brothers asked the other NBA owners for more time to declare whether or not they were moving the Sacramento Kings this off-season, it was obviously to give them time to finish negotiations on the many facets of the deal still needing to be done. Like getting upgrades to the Honda Center in…

  12. Maloofs throw support behind GM Petrie amid swirling rumors

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    You know how when you move it’s time to go through the closet and do a little pruning? Like throwing out the Neil Diamond sequin shirt that seemed like such a good idea when you were drinking in Vegas. You know, just pare down and clean up your life a little. Rumors have been making…

  13. Still hope in Sacramento, so fans keep fighting

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:33 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    The Sacramento Kings are close to becoming the Anaheim Royals. It’s about money. It’s always about money. It’s luxury boxes and television markets and ways to pay off debts. It’s not about the fans — the fans in Sacramento that have been loyal to this team and are about to be screwed over. But those…

  14. How does “Anaheim Royals” sound? Maloofs file name papers.

    DeMarcus Cousins Royals

    Every day it seems the Sacramento move to Anaheim is looking more and more likely. Sadly. The attorney for the Maloof brothers – the owners of the Kings — filed trademark papers for a number of potential names, according to the Sacramento Bee. “Anaheim Royals,” “Anaheim Royals of Southern California” and “Orange County Royals” all…

  15. If the Kings move to Anaheim, what name do they choose?

    Mar 4, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Sacramento-Kings

    You don’t have to like it — we don’t — but it looks more and more like the Sacramento Kings may be on the move to Anaheim. And with that would come a lot of questions. For example: What do we call them? There is already a Kings in the greater Los Angeles market, been…
