The Sacramento Kings May Not Be Heading To Anaheim

The Sacramento Kings will not be moving to Anaheim after they got word the NBA were against the move.  If this is indeed the case this is great for the basketball fans and for the city of Sacramento.

Today is the deadline for the Kings to request permission to move. If a  move is requested, it would first be reviewed by the league’s Relocation Committee, which would make a recommendation to the Board of Governors, which would make the final decision.  A majority vote from the other 29 owners is needed to approve a move. The Maloof family has been frustrated for years by an inability to have a new arena built for the team, which has played at the recently renamed Power
Balance Pavilion since 1988.

The arena is the smallest in the NBA, with a capacity of 17,137. It is tied with Milwaukee’s Bradley Center and The Palace at Auburn Hills, the home of the Detroit Pistons, as the third oldest in the league behind New York’s Madison Square Garden and Oracle Arena in Oakland.
