George Maloof

  1. George Maloof says deal to sell the Kings to Seattle “not close.” If you choose to believe him.

    There are plenty of people that are writing off the Kings’ future in Sacramento, but sources in Sacramento close to the situation have told PBT consistently that California’s capitol city will have the opportunity to make an offer to keep the team. Whether or not that ultimately happens remains to be seen, but for now…

  2. George Maloof’s Virginia Beach arena ploy falls apart, Seattle rumors heat up

    Phil, George, Gavin Maloof

    We never took the Maloofs or Virginia Beach seriously in their talks to move the Sacramento Kings to the eastern seaboard, and predictably the talks officially fell apart when Virginia Beach mayor Will Sessoms declared the deal dead for now on Tuesday. There were a million reasons that deal was a farce – a sad…

  3. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  4. NBA owners forced to choose between Maloofs and Sacramento in remake of Major League

    Dec 5, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    George Maloof

    Every good story needs a villain, but the NBA probably doesn’t want to remake the movie Major League in order to sell its product. Indeed, George Maloof and his brothers have done their best Rachel Phelps impression, complete with bottom-four payrolls over the past four seasons and little-to-no improvement to the franchise whatsoever. In the…

  5. Sponsors fleeing Maloofs amidst uncertainty over Kings’ future

    Maloofs Eating Carls Jr Barry Bonds

    How much would you pay for the right to advertise with a basketball team that refuses to guarantee where it will be a year from now? If you’re mattress maker Sleep Train and hamburger purveyor Carl’s Jr., the answer is nothing. Those are the reports coming out of Sacramento from the well-connected Carmichael Dave, who…

  6. Will Seattle billionaire Chris Hansen drastically overpay for the Sacramento Kings?

    News of billionaire Chris Hansen striking a deal with the Seattle City Council hit the wire late Monday night, as the sides have agreed to a framework on an arena deal that moves them a few smaller hurdles away from becoming an NBA-ready city (courtesy of Chris Daniels of King 5 in Seattle). In a…

  7. In depth: Stern fires shot across the bow at the Maloofs, who continue to threaten the NBA’s billion dollar arena subsidy

    A meticulous planner, everything David Stern says is run through a filter of lawyerly instinct and an ever-present awareness of his surroundings. So when David Aldridge asked him if the NBA would support the Maloofs in their desire to move the Sacramento Kings to Anaheim on Tuesday – don’t think for a second that he…

  8. Fate of Kings in Sacramento to be decided in New York hotel

    The NBA owners are getting together in a mid-town Manhattan hotel this week, and not just to give us all lockout flashbacks. (Quick, get Larry Coon to order some pizza!). It’s time for the Board of Governor’s meeting (which is a fancy way of saying all the owners get together and vote on stuff). It…

  9. David Stern comments about Kings arena situation with typical coded message

    David Stern took a moment to address the Kings arena situation in Utah before Wednesday’s game against the Suns. Brian Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune has been a great resource for the Kings arena information and he brought this quote to print: Stern on how he feels about the Kings staying in Sacramento, compared…

  10. Maloofs move significantly to meet Sac’s proposal, Kings fans provide political cover for arena deal to get done

    In the end, it was about a city and its team, and the will to fight for what was theirs. Kevin Johnson did the heavy lifting and the heavy hitters moved the ball forward, but it was the Sacramento Kings fans that gave the local politicians the will and the way to see the Kings…

  11. NBA doing the Maloofs’ talking for them

    Oct 6, 2011, 9:52 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The Maloofs’ relationship with Sacramento is decidedly love-hate. When the Kings were winning and Joe and Gavin were plastered on TV during games, Sacramentans were ready to propose. But it’s funny how life works — the team started losing and (gulp) started asking the city of Sacramento for money, and everything has been downhill since.…

  12. Maloofs give up part of casino to erase debt, is that good for Sacramento?

    Jun 15, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    maloofs-kings

    The conventional wisdom has been that part of the reason the Maloof brothers worked so hard to move their Sacramento Kings to Anaheim was to deal with debt problems — they were so overrun with debt in other areas of their lives they needed to moved the Kings to a higher-revenue place. That may not…

  13. Sacramento is just a train wreck

    Kings Hornets Basketball

    DeMarcus Cousins — the guy who lost his starting job after coach Paul Westphal called him unprofessional — was coming off the court in the fourth quarter and was offered a high five by Westphal Thursday night. Cousins declined it. Westphal grabbed is arm and they had words. Again. And that may have been third…

  14. Kings’ assistant coach Mario Elie arrested for DUI

    What is it about drinking and driving in Sacramento? Mario Elie, the one time three-point NBA specialist turned Sacramento Kings coach, was arrested for driving under the influence, according to News 10 in the city (KHTK 1140 AM broke the story). He was pulled over for a broken taillight but the officer smelled alcohol and…

  15. George Maloof, minority Kings owner, arrested for DUI in Vegas

    Joe and Gavin Maloof are the faces and primary owners of the Sacramento Kings, the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, plus a lot of other stuff you probably wish you owned. Their younger brother George is a minority owner in all of that, too. George was arrested in Las Vegas Saturday for driving under the…

  16. Maloofs reportedly meet about moving team to Seattle, which won't happen but is just one option

    Jul 19, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    When asked about having spoken to a Las Vegas group trying to get an arena built last week, Joe Maloof said he didn’t know anything about it. Maybe not, but the Maloof brothers and owners of the Sacramento Kings are apparently keeping their options open about whether the team stays in Sacramento. The Maloofs met…
