ESPN's Marc Stein & Sam Amick Say Sacramento Very Much In Play To Keep Kings

By tomorrow afternoon, there’s a good chance that we’ll have an indication of which way the NBA is leaning in regards to the Sacramento Kings saga.

The NBA’s Relocation and Finance committee is expected to give their recommendation to fellow league owners via conference call tomorrow and according to ESPN’s Marc Stein and USA Today’s Sam Amick, Sacramento’s shot at keeping the Kings appears to still have a serious chance.

Per Stein:

Concrete predictions on what NBA relocation committee will recommend to league owners Monday re: Kings’ future are hard to come by. But I’ve heard a couple plugged-in league insiders say this weekend that SAC still very much in game for keeping Kings

Per Amick:

I would agree. RT @ESPNSteinLine: heard a couple plugged-in league insiders this weekend that SAC still very much in game for keeping Kings

While the expected recommendation tomorrow isn’t a concrete decision, it’s expected that whatever decision is made, fellow league owners (outside of a few who will vote for friendships and/or regional loyalties) will remain on that same course when the official vote is made in the next few weeks.

For both Sacramento and Seattle, it’s finally an end to what has been an overly stressful process.
