During last night's broadcast of Inside the NBA, show host's Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley along with former Kings Kenny Smith and Chris Webber conducted a roundtable discussion on the Kings' cloudy future in Sacramento.  Webber mentioned on air that he has been involved behind-the-scenes in efforts to keep the team in Sacramento.  The Sacramento Bee reached former Kings executive vice-president Greg Van Dusen to find out more.

According to Van Dusen, Webber is willing to facilitate a deal - headed by Roger Stewart of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, to "restructure" the city's $77 million loan to the club. Van Dusen, who is working with Arco I and II architect Rann Haight.

"We've been working on this for about three months," said Van Dusen. "The idea is to relieve some of the financial pressure on the Maloofs and the ownership group. Roger had a very positive conversation today (Tuesday) with Chris, who isn't only interested in helping, he wants to lead the effort to keep the Kings here. He loves Sacramento and thinks this is where the Kings belong."
