The announcement came after a lot of us had thought it wouldn't happen until tomorrow at the earliest. But the official word is in. Vivek Ranadive and his group have finalized a deal with the Maloof family to purchase the Sacramento Kings.
It's been a long and arduous journey, Kings fans. But it's a new day and the best is in front of us.
We owe a debt of gratitude to a lot of people, but we owe the most to Mayor Kevin Johnson. If it were not for his dedication and devotion to keeping the Kings AND finding a way to revitalize downtown at the same time, we'd merely be sitting here watching our TVs with memories of the days when Sacramento had an NBA team.
We have a team. And we'll have it for a long time.
WE ARE SACRAMENTO!!
WE ARE THE KINGS!!
With a vote of 22-8, the NBA Board of Governors today rejected the request of the Maloofs to relocate the Sacramento Kings to Seattle. With that vote, the sale to Seattle's Hansen/Ballmer group was also negated.
David Stern, speaking after the vote, said it was always about Sacramento. He said when the pending sale to Seattle was announced, Mayor Kevin Johnson came to the NBA and asked them what Sacramento needed to do. Stern said they laid out all of the huddles a potential Sacramento ownership group would need to jump and that Johnson was able to get it done.
At this point, the Maloofs are still the owners of the Sacramento Kings. George Maloof has denied rumors that his family would not deal with Ranadive. Stern indicated that he believes an agreement between the Maloofs and Ranadive could come as soon as within the next 24 hours.
Word from Kevin Johnson is that the Ranadive group will be working with the Maloofs around the clock to get the sale completed.
At last, Kings fans can exhale.
That timeline is very doable. There is a lot of padding on both the October 2014 and the 2016 dates. There are too many VERY wealthy and/or powerful people involved in this for it to not get done....Jose Today, 09:02 PM
