Damn it. I tried to refrain from talking about the rumors of the Sacramento Kings relocating to Virginia Beach – I really did. The legs on the story were so shaky to begin with and they only got shakier as the hours passed by. But, I feel like I have to comment now – not so much on the actual relocation, but how this wildfire continues to grow. Yesterday afternoon in the Sacramento Bee, Tony Bizjak and Sam Stanton addressed the potential move and mentioned that the Maloof family would not be in Virginia Beach when their city council meets to hear an arena pitch proposal: Team officials declined Thursday to respond to a published report in a Virginia paper that the team will join Comcast-Spectacor and Live Nation in pitching an arena proposal to Virginia Beach city officials next week.

The Sacramento Kings could move just not to Virginia Beach

Players View was a bit leery of the rumor that surfaced and spread like wildfire that the Sacramento Kings were moving to Virginia Beach. Through statements that were released by the team and made by ownership, it seems very unlikely that this scenario will come to fruition. “The Kings organization over the last several years has been approached by numerous parties and cities...
