Kings Granted Relocation Deadline Extension

by March 01, 2011

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.
