The complicated saga of the Sacramento Kings' rumored sale to a Seattle-based group got even more muddled over the weekend.
After a series of Tweets on Wednesday reported the Kings were close to being sold to Seattle investors and a petition arose calling to give any local buyers an equal shot at purchasing the team, some said there was a chance the team could stay and be sold to new owners.
The Sacramento Bee and other media outlets cited anonymous sources who said a Democratic fundraiser and the founder of 24 Hour Fitness sought to buy the team from the Maloofs and build a new arena on the site of the Downtown Plaza mall.
Meanwhile, another grassroots campaign, "Here We Buy," asks fans to pledge to buy season tickets if a new arena is built.
"It’s hard to believe anything about the Kings future at this point," a headline on ranSACkedmedia reads.
"Until someone is willing to put their name up against the information they’re presenting on this topic, we’re ignoring this story," Isaac Gonzalez wrote. "For the sake of your emotional well-being, I suggest you turn your head from the hype machine and do the same as well."
