Basketball - Kings should stay in Sacramento, NBA panel recommends

A committee of NBA owners has recommended that the league reject a proposal to move the Sacramento Kings basketball team to Seattle, a move that makes it more likely for a group of California investors to buy the team from its current owners.


The recommendation by the league's relocation and finance committee was unanimous, the National Basketball Association said in a news release.

A final decision on the Kings' fate will be made by owners of all of the teams in a vote expected by May 13. But Monday's recommendation is expected to carry considerable weight with them.
