Kings Staying In Sacramento

Great news for the NBA and the city of Sacramento. The Sonics were ripped away from the Seattle residents despite a strong showing of support, but the Kings won't suffer the same fate.

Sacramento Kings strike arena deal to stay in city - ESPN

The city, the Sacramento Kings and the NBA announced a tentative deal Monday to finance a new arena that would keep the team in California's capital for the long haul. The City Council will vote on the plan March 6. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, NBA commissioner David Stern and the Maloof family, which owns the Kings, emerged from three days of talks in Orlando, Fla., -- where they had been negotiating during All-Star weekend -- to announce that the framework of a deal had been reached, giving fans some 3,000 miles away in the Central Valley reason to cheer for a comeback story that fittingly came straight out of Fantasyland.

Good for them.
