Kings Blog and Q&A

News, observations and reader questions about the Sacramento Kings and the NBA.

Offer to buy Kings? Uh, not


In an article posted earlier today in The Philippine Star, a columnist reported that a Filipino businessman is talking with the Maloofs about purchasing the Kings. Two things immediately struck me as not quite legit: the supposed $250 million sales price and the fact the businessman's identity was not revealed. Then, two sources totally quashed the deal - a high-ranking NBA executive who said he had not heard anything about this and Kings co-owner Joe Maloof, who texted that the entire matter was "ridiculous."

As the April 14-15 Board of Governors meeting (and that April 18 deadline to file for relocation) approaches, it will only get crazier. The Anaheim Royals? Doesn't quite grab you like Sacramento Kings, does it?
