NBA Denies Sacramento Kings To Virginia Beach Rumors

As reports came out on Thursday that the Sacramento Kings were looking to relocate across the country to Virginia Beach, the NBA has released a statement denying any claim that the team is looking to move anywhere as of now.

Per USA Today sports reporter Jeff Zillgitt on Twitter:

The Sacramento Kings themselves have also denied the claim, just as part-owner Joe Maloof has as well. The Maloofs and the city of Sacramento could not come to terms on a proposed $391 million entertainment complex in the downtown Sacramento area three months ago. The Maloofs have not made public what cities they are possibly looking into yet.
