Man Who Brought Kings To Town Says ‘No Chance’ Another Team Will Come

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The man who brought the Kings to Sacramento says there’s “no shot” another NBA team will move here.

Gregg Lukenbill says the economic environment in Sacramento is at an all-time low.

And he had harsh words when asked about the current Kings owners of the Kings, the Maloof family.

“In the long haul they’re gonna come off looking like hit and run drivers. I mean they came in they hit, it went okay for a while, and then they bailed,” said Lukenbill.

The Maloofs have until April 18 to officially file for relocation.  

Lukenbill helped move the kings to Sacramento in 1985.

He sold his stake in the team in 1992.
