With talks between the city of Sacramento and Sacramento Kings ownership seeming to deteriorate by the day, the Maloof brothers held a press conference in New York on Friday morning discussing their concerns with the deal and trying to come up with possible solutions.
One idea had by the Maloofs was for a renovation of the Kings already standing stadium, Power Band Pavilion, instead of building a brand new stadium in downtown Sacramento. Where does this leave Seattle in attaining a NBA team? Well, it doesn't really change much at the moment unless a large shift in negotiations are made.
To my friends in Seattle, unless something has changed, the endgame for the Kings if they leave Sacramento is Anaheim.— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) April 13, 2012
Unfortunately there seems to be only one place the Kings could really move to, and that is Southern California. Despite all logic saying moving to Anaheim isn't a great move, putting three NBA teams in essentially one market, Seattle will likely have to look elsewhere if they want to land an NBA team.
