Kings Granted Relocation Deadline Extension

The NBA has granted the Sacramento Kings request to extend the relocation deadline. The League released the following statement:

The NBA Board of Governors has approved an extension of the deadline for the Sacramento Kings to file an application to relocate the team to a new market. The deadline, which is typically March 1 prior to the season for which a team wants to relocate, has now been moved to April 18 to give Kings ownership the opportunity to discuss its options with the NBA Board of Governors at its meeting on April 14-15.

The cities of Anaheim and Sacramento will have to wait until the end of the regular season to find out the Kings’ fate.

    I wish for the return of the Seattle Supersonics, but don’t want another city to lose it’s team (unless its OKC). I’m probably the only person bummed when the Vancouver Grizzlies relocated..

    My problem with the Kings moving to Seattle to become the Sonics is that the Kings are an old and storied franchise and to lose them in Sac would be bad enough…but for my team to become a team I used to root against…to no longer exist at all as any semblance of the Kings? That would be crushing. I understand that is what happened to the Sonics but to say you want to have that happen to another city and another teams fans just so you can have yours back is cold-hearted. JUST STAY IN SAC MALOOFS.

    @Caboose – If an NBA team moves back to Seattle they must be called the Sonics or i will refuse to watch no matter how good they are…
