Report: Kings to stay in Sacramento

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Kings co-owner Joe Maloof says the NBA club will remain in Sacramento for at least one more season to give Mayor Kevin Johnson a chance to follow through on his promise for a new arena.

Maloof says, however, that if the city doesn’t follow through the Kings will be relocated to another city.

Maloof told The Associated Press it was “the fair thing to do,” and said he was moved by the fans’ show of support.

The team had been considering a move to Anaheim, Calif.

The Orange County Register first reported that the Kings were staying in Sacramento.
