“We haven’t talked to Virginia Beach,” Joe Maloof told CBS13.
Kings spokeman Eric Rose did not confirm the report from the Hampton Roads Business Journal either, and essentially gave CBS13 an elaborate "no comment":
"The Kings have been approached by numerous cities interested (in) buying the team and relocating it. We are not going to discuss which cities have approached the team and are not going to comment on every rumor. I can tell you that the Kings are 100% focused on putting a winning team on the court."
Will Sessoms, mayor of Virginia Beach, did confirm with CBS13 that Comcast-Spectacor and LiveNation have approached the city with a proposal to partner in building a new arena. Sessoms also said that Comcast would guarantee a professional sports franchise as a tenant in the new arena.
