Chris Hansen announces Seattle Ticket Waitlist

2

The prospective owner of the Sacramento Kings is calling on fans in Seattle to sign up for a "priority ticket waitlist" as a way to show the NBA how much interest there is in bringing pro basketball back to the area. http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/9041938/prospective-kings-owner-announces-ticket-waitlist-seattle

Changing the Narrative – A Supposing "What If" Sacramento Kings 2012-2013 Preview

"The Kings with no castle: The saga in Sacramento will be a topic for another day, but here's the relatively brief update: It's been one relocation rumor after another since the Maloof family that owns the team backed out of a downtown arena deal with the city and arena development company AEG. That's what happens when an NBA team is stuck playing in a 24-year-old arena, which was built on the cheap to begin with. Business aside, there is some basketball worth watching in Sacramento this season because of the presence of two fascinating young stars: enigmatic center DeMarcus Cousins and (insert position if you know it here) Tyreke Evans. Cousins is the best center in the game not named Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum, and it's entirely possible that the gap between him and them closes significantly this season. And for all the talk of his rough start with the U.S. select team during the summer, there's simply no way that spending substantial time on the court with future Hall of Famers can hurt a young man's game. As for Evans, the former Rookie of the Year is entering a contract year without clarity on two key fronts: what position he plays and whether this is his team anymore. Cousins has clearly emerged as the organization's centerpiece, but that doesn't mean Evans can't help secure his own future with a much-improved year. The push to make him a point guard ended last season and won't be revived now with Isaiah Thomas, Aaron Brooks and Jimmer Fredette all on board. Speaking of Fredette, the former BYU dynamo who mostly struggled as a rookie is looking like the odd man out at the moment and those rumblings about a possible trade could grow louder in the coming months." - Sam Amick of SI.com features 10 non-Super-Team storylines. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/sam_amick/09/24/storylines-nba-season/1.html

Sam Amick's Mock 5.0: Draft Day Edition

5. Sacramento Kings: Harrison Barnes, SF, North Carolina With the obligatory "things can change" caveat attached, I'm told that the Kings are likely to keep their pick despite Houston's well-chronicled attempts to acquire it. There should be an asterisk next to Barnes' name here, though, because sources said the Kings are very interested in adding a big man to complement center DeMarcus Cousins. For now, I'm thinking they'd either take Barnes here or move back if they decide go big (possibly to No. 7, as they have had recent talks with Golden State about a swap). If it's Barnes, that means the Kings got comfortable with the idea of him as their small forward of the future despite the fact that he refused to work out in Sacramento (as did Robinson, Kidd-Gilchrist and Beal). If the Kings go big, one possible target is North Carolina power forward John Henson, a two-time ACC Defensive Player of the Year. But Henson isn't believed to be in play until Detroit's No. 9 pick, so there could be a chance to obtain another asset if Sacramento traded down. Weber State point guard Damian Lillard is an unlikely dark horse because of the team's glut of guards. Also, I've been assured that it's possible that the Kings would pass on Kidd-Gilchrist if he remained available.

An LA Kings Primer

There is another post season underway in the midst of the NBA Playoffs. Hockey. In fact the Los Angeles Kings (which as we all know is the most oxymoronic team name ever constructed by humans) have been making headlines with their upset victories throughout the post season in their quest for the Stanley Cup. The Royal Half, a blog dedicated to the fans of the team (similar to this one), has decided to help out the intrigued onlookers of media and fans who may not know the teams identity as of yet. Upon reading this Gameday Media Preview you, the loyal Sacramento Kings fan, will somewhat understand the makeup of this hockey team just a little bit better.

Columbus Ohio wants an NBA Franchise

10

The mayor of Columbus Ohio, Michael B. Coleman, has made the NBA aware that the city is interested in a basketball team. Stern has said that league expansion is not an option. That means Columbus would have to lure a team from another city. The most-viable option appears to be the Sacramento Kings, whose owners have expressed a desire to relocate while battling city officials there over money.

Meanwhile, back at the trading post, some deals may actually be getting close to finalization and the Lakers are in middle of them. They’re determined to acquire a point guard sooner than two weeks from now. If it’s a multi-player transaction, Pau Gasol will be sacrificed. Should the Magic change their mind about accepting Andrew Bynum for Howard (Pau’s inclusion might do it), Jameer Nelson would almost have to be part of the package unless an above-average ball-handler can be obtained elsewhere. That someone could be Ramon Sessions ($4.2 million/$4.5 million). The Lakers are doing some fast talking to the Cavaliers, who are swamped by calls, as are the Kings. Sacramento leads the league in cap room, $9.4 million, whereas Cleveland has $7.1 million. Teams want them to take contracts for draft picks so they can maneuver. -Peter Vecsey (NY Post)

"The Knicks, who see Crawford as the sort of potent piece who could elevate them to championship-caliber status, can only offer $2.5 million to the player who had some of his best statistical years with them from 2004-09... The source close to Crawford said a deal with the Blazers is for $5 million and the Kings' is $6.5 million, with each scenario offering its own questions... While the Kings have missed the playoffs five straight seasons and aren't expected to break that streak this year, the source said Crawford could wind up starting in Sacramento, even though it just re-signed guard Marcus Thornton to a four-year, $31 million deal. Thornton is one of many ball-dominant guards for the Kings (in addition to Tyreke Evans, rookie Jimmer Fredette and even veteran wingman John Salmons), but they are attempting to build a high-powered offense and covet Crawford for his shooting and veteran presence." -Sam Amick from SI.com

4. Fact or Fiction: Most owners would rather tank '11-12 than concede. Marc Stein, ESPN.com: Fiction. I've been led to believe that there are some smaller-market teams out there, like Phoenix and Sacramento just to name two, that want or even need to have some semblance of a season as much as they'd love to see a restrictive NHL-type system in place. Call me gullible, but I still believe more teams out there would rather play than not play.

This is an attempt for someone, who seems vaguely unfamiliar to the details of the Sacramento arena situation, to connects the dots that end up with the Maloofs sending the team to Southern California.
