  1. Mayor Kevin Johnson to represent Kings at draft lottery

    May 11, 2011, 9:51 AM EDT

    Kevin Johnson

    Next Tuesday the Kryie Irving lottery takes place in Secaucus New Jersey. Some people call it the NBA Draft Lottery, which will determine the draft order for the league. But really this year it’s about Irving or getting a future role player. The Sacramento Kings have an 8.8 percent chance of landing the top prize…

  2. NBA crew in Sacramento tries to rebuild Kings image

    So it turns out, the Maloof brothers trying to move the Kings out of Sacramento did not sit well with the locals. Who could have seen that coming? David Stern responded by sending the A-Team. No, not that A-Team (although some B.A. Baracus could go a long way to helping the situation). This was some…

  3. Phil Jackson admits he sent apology letter to Maloofs

    Turns out, nobody wants to be compared to ousted Dodger owner Frank McCourt. Which you can’t blame someone for, McCourt and his wife are setting new lows in professional sports team ownership. The Maloof brothers, who own the “now we’re staying” Sacramento Kings, did not like it recently when Lakers coach Phil Jackson compared their…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Dallas hits, Kobe misses and Mavs make it a series

    May 3, 2011, 3:10 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant missed shot

    Are these Dallas Mavericks different? Different than the team that falls short, that so many pundits thought didn’t know how to close, that was too old or too soft. The one that keeps getting smoked in the playoffs. Or was it just the Lakers having one of their patented lapses? Combined with Kobe missing a…

  5. David Stern says ball in Sacramento’s court now

    May 2, 2011, 6:07 PM EDT

    David Stern

    Put up or shut up. David Stern is too much the diplomat to put it like that, but it was the gist of his comments in a Monday conference call discussing the decision by the Maloof brothers not to seek relocation from Sacramento to Anaheim. Couching everything in words of praise for Sacramento fans and…

  6. Anaheim may never get an NBA team thanks to Lakers

    May 2, 2011, 3:33 PM EDT

    Not to deflate the mood on what should be a day of celebration in Sacramento, but it is quite possible that a year from now Kings fans will lose their battle to keep the Kings in Sacramento. If efforts to get a new arena built fall short — and if public money is required it…

  7. Owners confirm Kings staying in Sacramento

    May 2, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    UPDATE #2, 1:04 pm: Here is what George Maloof told the Associated Press. “The mayor of Sacramento has told the NBA relocation committee that he will have a plan for a new arena within a year,” Maloof said Monday. “If not, the team will be relocated to another city…. “I think it’s the fair thing…

  8. Sacramento gets to keep Kings for now, but new building key

    Champaign corks should be popping. Horns should be honking in downtown as people in cars shout “here we stay.” There should be spontaneous parties in the street. Bloggers should hug mainstream newspaper writers. The Kings are staying in Sacramento. That is fantastic news — this is a market that has proven it will wholeheartedly supported…

  9. Anaheim billionaire throws more money to push Kings move

    honda-center-of-anaheim

    Sacramento has all the momentum — reportedly the NBA and its relocation committee have told the Kings owners, the Maloof brothers, to stay put and not move their team this summer. But the folks in Anaheim are not giving up, stepping in at the last minute to sweeten the deal to move the Kings south,…

  10. Kings owners talk to NBA officials, told they should stay put

    Apr 28, 2011, 10:12 AM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    Do the Sacramento Kings owners want to put the other owners resolve to the test? That’s what it comes down to. The NBA has been on a fact-finding mission and collected pledges on nearly $10 million in new sponsorship money in the Kings stay in Sacramento. The NBA has heard of the new plans for…

  11. NBA tells Sacramento “show us the money” but where are Maloofs?

    Apr 26, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    David Stern, maloofs

    This week, another team of NBA officials showed up in Sacramento, to meet with Mayor Kevin Johnson and the sponsors he lined up to generate another $9 million in sponsorships if the Kings stay in town. Basically, the NBA is saying, “show us the money.” This isn’t a pledge drive, the NBA wants to see…

  12. Kings television deal could be reworked as part of Sacramento effort

    Apr 22, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    If it’s all about the television deal, Sacramento still has hope. Comcast is willing to talk. One of the key reasons the Kings owners — the Maloof brothers — reportedly wanted out of Sacramento was a bad television deal, something they could do much better with in the massive Southern California market. But an official…

  13. NBA owners call timeout on Kings move, deadline pushed back

    Apr 15, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Kid kings fan

    The NBA owners have called a timeout on the Kings efforts to move out of Sacramento and to Anaheim. It likely still will happen, especially after the NBA took the ludicrous step of naming Clay Bennett — you remember him, the guy that bought the Sonics and put in a non-existent effort to get a…

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

    Apr 15, 2011, 9:07 AM EDT

    Lakers Kings Basketball

    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…

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

    Apr 13, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    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…

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

    Kid kings fan

    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…

  17. Kings fans not going down without a fight to keep team

    Apr 5, 2011, 3:37 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    The Kings move to Anaheim for next season is almost certain. There are details to be hammered out, approvals needed, but there is a lot of momentum. But the fans of Sacramento are not giving up. Through a twitter campaign — #herewebuild — started by local sports radio show host Carmichael Dave there are about…

  18. Omri Casspi not having fun, may want away from Kings

    Apr 5, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    Omri Casspi is not having fun sitting on the bench watching the Kings lose. (Well, not the last week or so when they have been winning, but you get the idea.) With Marcus Thornton and Francisco Garcia starting on the wings and Donte Green getting time in front of him off the bench, Casspi was…

  19. Kings’ relocation: Follow the television money to Anaheim

    Mar 31, 2011, 4:35 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    That lease deal the city of Anaheim approved and is now awaiting a Maloof signature is not a great one for the Kings. Not really close. They take on more debt — a $50 million loan — and don’t get all the luxury box money, and just a percentage of concessions, parking and other incomes.…

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

    Mar 30, 2011, 2:01 AM EDT

    honda2center72109327

    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…

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

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    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…

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

    Mar 23, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    honda-center-of-anaheim

    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…

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

    Mar 19, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT

    honda-center-of-anaheim

    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…

  24. Maloofs throw support behind GM Petrie amid swirling rumors

    Mar 18, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Mar 16, 2011, 11:18 PM EDT

    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…
