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.
NBA spokesman Mike Bass on Kings: "We have no information from the Kings on this matter and there has been no application for relocation."— Jeff Zillgitt (@JeffZillgitt) August 23, 2012
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.
