The Sacramento Kings….of Sacramento?
Big props to the excellent reporting of SI.com’s Sam Amick who has a couple of major tidbits to share about the Sacramento Kings’ relocation situation. First up, the Anaheim grass is not looking so green on the TV front.
The plan as presented in New York included a possible partnership worth $20 million annually with KDOC, an Orange County-based, independent television station that is co-owned by the very man working so hard to make this move happen (Henry Samueli).
There were internal signs that the league is taking Sacramento seriously this week, as two sources said an NBA representative called on Monday to advise the Kings’ business team to prepare the season-ticket packages and corporate sponsorship plans that had been on hold since rumors of the move were legitimized in February.
