Despite rampant and ongoing speculation about the Sacramento Kings moving to Virginia Beach or Seattle, the organization is likely to stay in California's capital city for another season, according to Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com.
Due to little movement from both the city of Sacramento and the Kings, the report cites NBA insiders who believe the Kings won't file to relocate for 2013-14 and could potentially stay in Sacramento without a deal for a new arena for multiple seasons.
For now, the read that the Kings have nowhere to go is accurate, according to several people close to the situation. That has been the city's biggest reason for optimism in the toughest of times, when talks turned ugly and personal, and it is never more true than in November 2013 in a twisted sort of way. Sacramento's hopes to keep the NBA rest on every other place.
The situation has developed into a holding pattern, as Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson waits for the Maloof family to come back to the negotiating table and the Kings continue look for viable options to move elsewhere. Neither scenario has occurred, which could leave the Kings in Sacramento next season without a new deal from the city.
