  1. 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…

  2. Sacramento mayor will make final pitch to NBA owners

    Apr 1, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

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

    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…

  6. Video: Lou Williams three sends game to overtime for Sixers

    Mar 28, 2011, 8:18 AM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    There was a time, early in the season, when we wondered when the Sixers would start executing and making plays a the end of game and win a few close ones. Well, they are doing it quite well now. Even if it didn’t come out as planned here. Watch Lou Williams execute here, knocking down…

  7. Marcus Thornton does it again

    Mar 27, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Thornton_Marcus

    The Kings have very little left to play for. The season has been a disaster from the get-go, with Tyreke Evans struggling through injury all season, the team chafing at DeMarcus Cousins’ immaturity, and the coaching staff looking lost at time. But perhaps the brightest spot outside of Cousins’ play has been the emergence of…

  8. Maloofs shut down latest Sacramento arena plan

    Mar 27, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Well, that didn’t take long. After a plan had been submitted that was supposed to save Sacramento from the Kings’ relocation to Anaheim, including a funding source, the Maloofs have already gone and rejected the proposal, because the money wasn’t there and called for renovation, not a new arena. “A representative of the Maloofs listened…

  9. Phil Jackson isn’t a big fan of the Kings’ Anaheim relocation plan

    Mar 26, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    Phil Jackson’s not exactly what you would call a friend to the NBA small market. He played in New York, coached in Chicago and then Los Angeles. He’s supported contraction, despite growing up, attending high school, and college in small market areas, albeit ones without NBA teams. But Jackson has been surprisingly supportive of Sacramento…

  10. Prospective lease agreement between Kings, city of Anaheim released

    Mar 26, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Gavin Maloof's Exclusive Housewarming Party

    There’s a deal on the table to kill professional basketball in Sacramento. Anaheim city officials Friday released an unsigned lease proposal between the city and the Sacramento Kings involving owners the Maloof brothers, and Honda Center operator Henry Samueli. From SBNation.com: The centerpiece of the agreement is an upfront $50 million loan to the Maloofs,…

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Here are some details on the latest effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. They’re trying, but let’s understand this is a longshot. At best. Steve Francis’ agent has pled guilty to tax evasion and a series of other crimes and is looking at a decade behind bars. LeBron James has Kemba Walker’s back. Another…

  12. Tyreke Evans probable for Friday’s game

    Mar 24, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans is “probable” for Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. Evans has struggled with injuries all season long, and has missed the last 19 games due to plantar faciitis. The Kings have gone 5-14 in the 19 games that Evans has missed, and…

  13. Marquis Daniels to have surgery on bruised spinal cord

    Mar 24, 2011, 11:36 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Marquis Daniels collapse to the floor when the Celtics were playing the Magic — on a relatively harmless looking play — was one of the scarier moments of the season. But it was part of an ongoing medical issue Daniels faced — because of his spinal cord when he would get his neck bent certain…

  14. 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…

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

    honda2center72109327

    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…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago’s offense is as awesome as the Kings defense is horrid

    What you missed while getting busted for polygamy due to Facebook (damn you Zuckerberg)…. The Celtics beating up and coming from behind to beat the Knicks is our game of the night. Bulls 132, Kings 92: For a night, there were no questions about the Bulls offense. For a night it was an unstoppable force,…

  17. Carlos Boozer expected to return to Bulls Monday

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    Carlos Boozer, after missing the Bulls last five games with a sprained ankle, took part in the team shootaround and is expected back on the court Monday night when the Bulls host the Kings Monday night, according to KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune (via twitter). The timing could not be better, as Taj Gibson…

    Apple Unveils iPad 2

    One thing that has become ubiquitous in NBA locker rooms and around players — iPads. Out West, seeds five through 11 are within five games of each other. Here’s a breakdown on who has the advantage. A Sacramento PR man is urging a boycott of an April 1 Kings game in protest of the team’s…

  19. Kings waive Luther Head; Nets sign Sundiata Gaines

    Mar 19, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Sundiata Gaines Nets

    Because on a Saturday night, rather than heading to the local pub with your friends for some curry and chips and a nice pint (wait, what is this, London?) you were searching the Web for minor basketball transactions. That’s why were hear for you. First, the Kings have waived guard Luther Head, according to CSN…

  20. 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…

    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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

    Tyreke Evans

    The Kings may get Tyreke Evans back for the final few weeks of the season. He has been cleared by doctors to practice and his return to the team should come in one to two weeks, according to CSN Bay Area. Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot all season. Three weeks ago…

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    Golden State could be one of the winners if the Sacramento Kings head to Anaheim — they would be the only Northern California team. Sacramento baseball fans grow up rooting for the Giants. That could be the Warriors, they could grab future generation of NBA fans in California’s capitol. Warriors owner Joe Lacob — in…
