Despite earlier reports that Virginia Beach had emerged as a possible relocation option for the Sacramento Kings, the NBA has received no information with regards to such a move, according to league spokesman Mike Bass.

After the Maloof brothers' deal for a $391 million entertainment complex in Sacramento fell through three months ago, reports emerged that they had started looking for a new home for their franchise. Reportedly, Comcast is willing to guarantee a 25-year lease on a new arena in Virginia Beach in exchange for naming rights and the right to broadcast Kings games.
If last year's back-and-forth with the city of Anaheim is any indication, it's likely we haven't heard the last from the Maloofs on the relocation of the Kings.
