The Sacramento Kings have been on a roller coaster ride the last few months as relocation talks swarm the franchise, but it appears there is finally some good news for the fans. According to a report from Marc Spears of Yahoo!, NBA commissioner David Stern said owners around the league would reject a move to Anaheim, and that the Maloof family will keep the team in Sacramento.

We've all heard this story before, but Kings fans will take any good news they can get.
Assuming a move to Anaheim is off the table, Seattle is the only other known destination that is actively pursuing an NBA franchise. The city of Sacramento simply needs to get a deal done for either a new arena or some serious renovations to Arco Arena (Yes, that's still the name) in the coming years.
