Virginia Beach's city council is expected to hear Tuesday a proposal for an arena that could land it a professional sports team -- specifically, the Sacramento Kings.
According to The Virginian-Pilot, the plan is being pitched at 3 p.m. by top officials from Comcast-Spectacor, owner of the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers and former owner of the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers. The presentation will reveal an 18,000-seat arena located near Oceanfront that will cost between $275-400 million.
Kings' owner Joe Maloof has denied reports about a possible move for his franchise. In April, plans for a Sacramento-based, $391 million area fell apart, and since then rumors have been flying about a possible relocation spot for the franchise.
