Sac-Town... Too Little, Too Late On New Arena...???


The Sacramento City Council approved the vote to continue/start/re-start negotiations to build a new arena and they had to do it just to even keep the wheels moving...

It was the last time, physically, that the city council could make a decision before Sacramento's counter-offer is due to the NBA on March 1. Mayor Kevin Johnson have to be able to tell the NBA their counter-offer is to purchase the Sacramento Kings as well as build a new facility.

Outgoing and "out-going" Commissioner David Stern has told Sac-Town that they can't keep the Kings without a new arena to replace aging Arco Arena...

Here's team coverage of too little, too late...

Mayor KJ has told everyone willing to listen that billionaire Ron Burkle and local millionaire Mark Mastrov lead the local group trying to keep the Kings in town. Burkle currently owns the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins, and Mastrov earned his fortune after starting and then selling 24-Hour Fitness.
