• Mayor unveils plan to keep Kings in Sacramento

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Mar 1, 2013
    Mayor Kevin Johnson says Sacramento is back in the ballgame after announcing that two investors want to buy the NBA's Kings and build a downtown arena to stop the proposed move of the city's only major league sports team to Seattle. Each released statements through the mayor's office expressing excitement but offered no details about the plan. Burkle, who also expressed interested in buying the Kings two years ago, had met with NBA Commissioner David Stern at the league's New York headquarters in January before deciding to back out of the bid. Mastrov was among the final bidders for the Golden State Warriors before Joe Lacob and Peter Guber bought the team for an NBA-record $450 million in 2010, and he's hoping the second time going solo in Northern California is the charm.
