SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson says he’s planning on going to the NBA Board of Governors meeting next month to plead Sacramento’s case to keep the Kings.
Johnson wrote on his blog “there’s still a little time left on the clock” to prevent the kings from moving.
He says the league has already granted his request to attend and speak on behalf of the city.
Meanwhile, several players for the Sacramento Kings are speaking out about the likely move to Anaheim.
Players sounded off during a volunteering event at Will C. Wood Middle School in Sacramento.
Forward Francisco Garcia says even if the Kings move, Sacramento will still be home.
“I’ve got a house out here and I plan on keeping it. I love the weather here. I love the people, the fans,” said Garca. “I’ll always be a King for life.”
Players hear from fans every day asking about the team leaving.
They say they’re trying to stay focused on what they can control: games on the court.
