Cowbell Kingdom Podcast Ep 34: Sacramento arena negotiations update with Rob McAllister

by Jonathan Santiago & James Ham

Negotiations between the city, Maloofs and NBA continue in the push for a new Sacramento arena.  What is the biggest hurdle to overcome in hopes of reaching a deal before Thursday’s March 1 deadline?  We try to find out from KFBK reporter and CK columnist/contributor Rob McAllister, who is in Orlando closely following the critical meetings.

From McAllister’s most recent post:

“We are not there yet,” Gavin Maloof told me as the three brothers walked alone once the meetings were called for the night.

Despite the talks going for more than seven hours Sunday, the Maloofs appeared a bit relieved. Even George cracked a smile when I asked them if they were on a “brothers’ walk.”

Mayor Johnson believed forward progress had been made inside the conference rooms at the Waldorf Astoria.

“I am excited where we are,” he said. “It is a very productive day for Sacramento. We have taken one step closer.”

Listen after the jump…
