Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive believes that his fellow NBA owners will unanimously vote to force Donald Sterling to sell the Los Angeles Clippers. Ranadive bought the Kings in May of 2013 but has been involved with the league since becoming a co-owner of the Golden State Warriors in 2010.
With his team up 95-67 over the Chicago Bulls Monday night in the closing minutes of the game, Sacramento Kings forward Derrick Williams saw an opportunity to do something spectacular. The noted dunk artist made a slick steal, broke away by himself and set up for a monster throwdown. There was just one problem: he forgot to finish the job.
It looks like Jimmer Time is officially over in Sacramento, as the Kings have started aggressively shopping guard Jimmer Fredette around the NBA. While this should be expected after the team landed Kansas guard Ben McLemore in the 2013 NBA Draft, Fredette’s fans will no doubt begin to pop up and defend him.

While we’ve been covering this pretty extensively over the past few weeks and everyone knew this was coming, the NBA officially killed the Sacramento Kings’ proposed move to Seattle on Wednesday. The NBA owners voted Wednesday to reject the move with a 22-8 vote.

So much for the NBA returning to Seattle. On Monday the NBA’s relocation committee voted unanimously to oppose the Sacramento Kings’ proposed move to Seattle. The committee is made of of 12 owners, and they held a conference call in which the potential move was discussed and voted down. The group’s recommendation will be passed on to […]
