Kings staying in Sac-Town

Sacramento KingsAfter the Sacramento Kings lost to the Los Angeles Lakers on April 13, many thought that would be the last of the Kings in Arco Arena and Sacramento.

However, according to the Sacramento Bee, the Kings will be headed back to the capital city, not Anaheim for the 2011-12 season.

The Kings (formerly Royals) have called Rochester, Cincinatti, Kansas City and Omaha home, and according to the Bee, NBA comissioner David Stern told owners Joe and Gavin Maloof that the decision to stay was the right one.

But the Kings and the city of Sacramento have plenty of work in front of them in trying to organize the financing and building of a new arena in order to keep the team from moving yet again.

Official word will be coming via a press conference scheduled for 11 a.m. PST.
