CONTROVERSY: Kings staying in Sacramento for 2011

5
The owners of the Sacramento Kings have dropped plans to move the team to Anaheim next season and will stay at least one more year. "We are heading back to Sacramento. It was a tough decision," team co-owner George Maloof said, according to The Sacramento Bee. "Ticket holders were reaching out to us, and it was the right thing to do to give it a shot at one more season." The decision gives Sacramento one more chance at planning the new arena the Maloofs say they need for the Kings to remain in California's state capital. Previous efforts to assemble a plan and financing for a new arena have fallen short. Team co-owner Joe Maloof told The Associated Press the team would remain in Sacramento for one more season to give mayor Kevin Johnson a chance to follow through on his promise for a new arena. If the city doesn't follow through, the Kings will be relocated to another city, he added. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=6465353
