The Sacramento Kings released a brief statement to quiet the rumors about the team's potential move to Virginia Beach. The PR department sent the media a short notice that said they won't discuss rumors. But the release did say that many cities have touched base with the franchise to express interest in acquiring the Kings.
"The Kings organization over the last several years has been approached by numerous parties and cities interested in buying and relocating the franchise. The franchise is not going to discuss which cities have approached the organization and are not going to comment on every rumor."
To end the talk, the Kings said their only focus will be on the team they're trying to put on the court. But as a whole, the statement did not do a whole lot to deny the Virginia Beach rumors.
The Hampton Roads Business Journal reported earlier today that the Kings could move to Virginia Beach, but co-owner Joe Maloof quickly went public to deny all such discussions. Soon after, the NBA issued a statement to say it had "no information" on the move.
