I think Hansen could have saved himself 25 large by letting them sweat a day or two more. He has the time.


Man I hope this is true!!!!!!!

If true I would think he had a deal that he could get that cancer away completely he did it, after all 25 million at this point isn't a bank breaker. Hell the NBA may have kicked that in just to get the Maloofs out of the league.

I know you need money badly... But you claim to love your team, why would you EVER sell to an owner that flat out said he wants to move the team out of the city? I mean thats pretty messed up, money or not

Here's a thought that I've had a few times over the last little bit since this story was leaked. Maybe the deal's done. Complete. Finished. Signed and everything. Why? It's simple. Nobody wanted this leaked in the first place, and I'm guessing they were pretty pissed that it was leaked. Nobody, and I mean nobody wants anyone to watch the remaining Kings season knowing they're done for and dead in the water until the absolute last second. There could be a ton of behind-the-scenes stuff happening that will move this sale along quicker when it's finally announced, but until then, they don't want to say anything because of the effect it will have on the team and league. Just a hunch, but we may see the sale and petition to move done at the 11th hour. That leak wasn't supposed to happen, and things got well out of hand quickly. Too quickly for how early it still is in the year.

That seems possible. What seems not so possible is that they could keep it quiet, though. Especially since the maloof bitch is on a reality tv show.

I've heard from reliable source that the Kings' sale to Hansen-Ballmer in Seattle is done deal. Source said price of the sale is $525 million. The source said further that the Maloofs will have no stake or decision-making with Seattle team and are out.


If thats true, they upped the price $25M to let the Maloofs be pacified enough to keep their stench off the franchise.

God I hope so. I HOPE SO. NO GOD DAMN MALOOFS.

Wow. For you 25 million is 25 large? For me 25 large would be 25 dollars. :(

Geez...a lot of names popping up now. Mark Mastrov, founder of 24 hour Fitness. Also Dale Carlsen, CEO of Sleep Train have both made offers to keep Kings in Sacramento. This is gonna be a bumpy ride!

Offering and then finding out what it will cost is another. I could see the Maloofs background partnering with these guys to keep their hand in the pie. Buying them still solves nothing due to the Arena, that situation has to be accounted for as well. Hansen is now well into about a Billion Dollars between Arena and Team. Are those guys going to be able to match that. STAYING in Sacramento is the focal point of this I would think. The whole previous arena deal would have to become reality and picked up my these new participants, that still at this stage would include the Maloofs who nixed that deal already.

Maloofs I think are now playing both ends against the middle hoping to land somewhere with ownership portion, a percentage of control and the prestige as well as a nice wad of cash.

At this point, I'm not believing anything until I hear word of an official press conference in Seattle. Nobody actually involved in the negotiations is saying shit. They said it was a done deal on Wednesday, and we saw how that turned out. I have to admit it's looking really good, but the sleezy Maloof brothers throw any actual credibility out the window. I won't even entertain a % of chance the deal is done because of the current COMPLETE TOOL owners. Their dad would be so embarrassed by his complete business failure sons that inherited all his dough.

I don't buy it. I think they are just trying to drive the price up. The Kings have been in a financial mess a long time. The Arco arena is terrible. D they really think they could make money there? That Athens question and I say..nope.

If it's not from the NBA at this point or a completly public mainstream source I will not buy it. Too many hands getting in the cookie jar at the last minute, handshake agreements work out like their Arena deal, especially with this family.

I wish we had another team to work with, kinda like the bitch that wants you but plays hard to get and wants you to buy dinner and drinks all night and then chills you. The moment you bring in the quiet competition and don't pay attention to her she is calling and making all sorts of overtures.

.NET Sonics 2.0 Beat Reporter Throwdown here with something a little interesting wayyyy too damn early on a Saturday Morning:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nb ... f8557950=1
Quote:
@sam_amick
With the end of the Kings & rebirth of the Sonics seeming inevitable, Kevin Johnson says he's still in this game


Sounds like the NBA might actually be favoring Seattle at the cost of Sactown...
Quote:
@sam_amick
A line that was added late: Sacramento proposal must include viable arena plan to be taken seriously by NBA


Now didn't the NBA and KJ have a deal hashed out and agree'd upon? I thought that proposal was still on the table for any owner or the Maloofs if they changed their minds, now its not good enough?

After reading that tweet, it seems like the only thing that could keep the Kings from becoming the Sonics is someone from Kansas City comes in and offers what Hansen & Ballmer offered with the Sprint Center read to go now.

It's my understanding that the arena deal died when the Maloofs pulled out. It wasn't passed as some general standing offer to any potential Kings owner, it was a very specific thing that was voted on by their council and what not but was nullified when there was no final agreement. KJ has suggested that the same deal would be available, but I'm pretty sure they'd have to vote again and all that, and that's assuming the Sac owners would all be signed on to that exact deal. That's a lot to swing in a short time, especially when you consider it's hard to negotiate an arena deal when you aren't the team owners and you can't be the team owners without an arena deal.

We ain't getting no team anytime soon...

Quote:
So the potential hang-up I'm hearing with the sale of the Sacramento Kings is that the Maloofs don't just want to
retain a small percentage of ownership, they still want a voice in how the franchise is run. Their leverage, a source said, is to threaten to take the sweetheart deal still waiting for them in Orange County and, should the other owners not approve the deal out of allegiance to Dr. Buss and the Lakers, take them to court with an anti-trust suit. That is far messier than anybody wants, Maloofs included I suspect, but I also can't see anyone buying the team and still giving the Maloofs any sort of say. The March 1 deadline to file for the rights to play somewhere other than Sacramento next season might be the biggest motivator in all of this


I'm just about finished with my hopes right now.

That is far messier than anybody wants, Maloofs included I suspect, but I also can't see anyone buying the team and still giving the Maloofs any sort of say. The March 1 deadline to file for the rights to play somewhere other than Sacramento next season might be the biggest motivator in all of this


I'm just about finished with my hopes right now.

See my post earlier, they want someone basically to front them money for a Arena, and pay off their debts while they maintain operations control of the team where ever it is at. They get to play owners and make decisions while someone else writes the checks for everything.

They are delusional at best. Hansen or anyone for that matter won't sign on to a deal that has their skanky fingerprints on it anywhere if thats what they expect.

Sacramento might be desperate enough to do it though.

The Maloof bastards might just be great negotiators. The new report has added 25 mill to the price - they got that for demanding to make decisions and their last vestige of ownership.

They said the same thing when Balmer made a late entry here also if you remember correctly. It didn't stop anything.

Yeah, thats what I am just remembering. There also isn't anything in how they intend to pay for the arena and such. I'm out until it's an official statement one way or another.
