The decision on where the Sacramento Kings will play basketball next season might not be made by the April 18 Board of Governors meeting, NBA Commissioner David Stern said Wednesday, detailing the full complexity of the decision the league has to make on whether to keep the Kings in Sacramento or approve a sale of them and move to Seattle in time for next season.
Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver on Wednesday seemed genuinely uncertain about how this years-long saga will finally play out, saying their owners needed to amass more information about numerous topics before they could even begin to make a call on which city will win and which will lose.
“There are practical considerations,” Silver said. “We have to plan for a season. So there’s the combination of a timeline set out in the (NBA) constitution for making a determination, and there are also the factors that you point out — not just setting a schedule, selling tickets for next season, selling sponsorships. The owners are mindful of all of those factors.”
