  • We ain't getting no team anytime soon...

    So the potential hang-up I'm hearing with the sale of the Sacramento Kings is that the Maloofs don't just want to
    retain a small percentage of ownership, they still want a voice in how the franchise is run. Their leverage, a source said, is to threaten to take the sweetheart deal still waiting for them in Orange County and, should the other owners not approve the deal out of allegiance to Dr. Buss and the Lakers, take them to court with an anti-trust suit. That is far messier than anybody wants, Maloofs included I suspect, but I also can't see anyone buying the team and still giving the Maloofs any sort of say. The March 1 deadline to file for the rights to play somewhere other than Sacramento next season might be the biggest motivator in all of this


    I'm just about finished with my hopes right now.

  • See my post earlier, they want someone basically to front them money for a Arena, and pay off their debts while they maintain operations control of the team where ever it is at. They get to play owners and make decisions while someone else writes the checks for everything.

    They are delusional at best. Hansen or anyone for that matter won't sign on to a deal that has their skanky fingerprints on it anywhere if thats what they expect.

  • The Maloof bastards might just be great negotiators. The new report has added 25 mill to the price - they got that for demanding to make decisions and their last vestige of ownership.

    Yeah, thats what I am just remembering. There also isn't anything in how they intend to pay for the arena and such. I'm out until it's an official statement one way or another.

    That was because the state legislature wouldn't push his Key Arena renovation plan through, they killed that deal with the quickness.

    It's because the City passed the buck to the state, it wasn't a state issue it was the cities responsiblity and council. They were getting heat and trying to save face at this point, they were also m,aking deals with Bennett for their 45 million kick back after they knew he was leaving and they could not stop it.

  • California is broke. Anybody really think the taxpayers are going to foot the bill for a arena and to buy a team ? Just relax, it's all posturing. They know the Seattle group has deep pockets and are trying to play them to get some more $$. This group would have showed up a long time ago they still have Arco arena to deal with and where is the cash for that coming from?

    Well from the article that throw posted, the arena from the Sac group would be privately funded by those involved in the purchase of the team.

    So where were this investors a few months ago when it was all the talk? Johnson said he was going to hunt up investors and boom out of nowhere there are some. a few months ago they could not get buyers or a group that wanted a Arena. Things can change but a buyer for the team and willing to build an arena in a weeks time when they tried for months before. There has been no information on how much the Maloofs would be involved either.

    Again sounds like a tactic that is maybes what ifs and stuff until one of those groups makes a conference and appearence.

    Well I guess there was a reason he had body gaurds then, seen him at the Weston downtown not long afterwards. Wonder how much that cost the city. I didn't think most Mayors had a contingent of them.

  • Sac buyers will be given a chance to match. NBA also has to approve. Stern has said he doesnt want to take the NBA away from Sac.

    This deal is far from done. The Maloofs are going broke, and are probably just using Seattle to milk a higher bid out of local buyers.

  • What pisses me off is that the Times and the Tribune are posting front-page stories based on these stupid little tweets. Don't major news outlets corroborate sources anymore, or is that something we just don't do in the twentyfirst century. In the old days, you don't run a story unless the "league source" has confirmation by another source. It's the newspapers that are jerking us around.

    It was my understanding that the team is valued at 525 total and Hanson will be purchasing 65 pct of that.

  • "Because Chris Hansen, the venture capital magnate who is seeking to buy the Kings and move them north, is close to Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen and the ownership group of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks, it's been believed in Seattle that Hansen wanted to wait until the Seahawks' season ended before going forward with making his pursuit of the Kings public, so as to not upstage the football team. With the Seahawks' last-second loss Sunday in Atlanta, the time may have come."

  • Doesn't do the NBA any harm in letting Sacramento try to save their team. Plus, with the Seattle group having to provide assurances that the arena will be built with two actions yet to be determined, not sure how they can accomplish that to the NBA's satisfaction? Who knows how a lawsuit will go and the Environmental impact statement could have some wrenches to throw into the works.

    Sure sounds like Johnson has a fighting chance. Plus being able to bypass the owner to show the NBA the plan keeps emotions from getting into the works. If I am a Kings fan, I am more hopeful than I was as a Sonics fan with Mayor McCheese and his band of dunderheads.

  • And the plot thickens...

    http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020139304_arenalawsuitxml.html

    A second lawsuit has been filed to block the city of Seattle and King County from carrying out a plan with the Chris Hansen-led investor group to help finance a $490 million Sodo sports arena.

  • I thought that the current MOU was I-91 compliant? Thats why this is more funny to me than anything.

  • It's is, just the Mariners, the port, and "the citizens with nothing better to do", trying to derail this, something they will all fail miserably at!

  • Hmm notice the timing of this, just at the point in the negotiations where the NBA will start looking at the fall out and benefits of pushing the Seattle proposal of Hansens and the Sacramento investor group thats coming together.

    Sounds like the Mariners want to squash this badly before it gets more media attention and derails the spring traing hoopla. Fear of being upstaged already before the team is even here let alone next season if the deal is approved.

    This suit was filed by the I 91 guy it says but Port authority is involved and who's backing them? Mariners.

  • The Mariners mostly Howard Lincoln is the one's trying to stop this. They don't want more competition for the sports dollar. If two more teams are there to compete with, it means if the M's want to compete locally against successful teams in their own market then they will have to spend the necessary dollars to compete in their division instead of the bargain basement teams they've been trotting out there of late. That is something that Montgomery Burns I mean Lincoln doesn't want to do. Howard is too stupid to see the horrible and permanent PR damage he is doing to the team he runs.

  • There has to be a viable plan for a new arena for the NBA to approve the move. That's what these asswipes are trying to do - throw up a tangle of legal technicalities to hinder the Sonics coming back any way they can.
