Johnson Issues Statement On Meeting With Maloofs

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Mayor Kevin Johnson issued a statement Wednesday night about a meeting with the Kings co-owners, the Maloofs, about the future of the NBA franchise.

“I appreciate the Maloofs for meeting with me tonight. We had a candid and productive conversation about our mutual goals and interests.  I made clear that our community wants the Kings to stay, but we are fully aware that this is ultimately their decision.  The Maloofs understand that regardless of what they choose, I will join with other leaders across the region to fight for what’s best for our community. This includes developing a new entertainment and sports complex, with or without the Kings.  I fully expect to continue an open, direct and proactive dialogue with the Maloofs as we all move forward.”
