Maloofs’ Private Eye Investigates Business Owners’ Letter To NBA

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – CBS13 has learned the Maloof family has hired a retired FBI agent, who now works as a private investigator.

The private eye has been making calls to some of Sacramento’s most powerful business owners, as recently as last week, inquiring about possible forgeries on a letter sent to NBA Commissioner David Stern.

That letter, publicized at a press conference, called for the NBA to strongly encourage the Maloofs to sell the team in an effort to build a downtown arena.

Stranley Lukowicz was one of the business owners contacted, and CBS13 spoke to him on the phone.

“We got a call from somebody claiming to be a private investigator and trying to get in touch with myself to see if we signed a letter to the NBA commissioner; because they believe our names were forged,” said Lukowicz.

When asked if his name was forged, Lukowicz said, “No they were not.”

CBS13 asked George Maloof about the ex-FBI agent inquiry by phone and text, and received a statement from his spokesperson.

“It is the Kings’ and Maloof policy not to discuss internal business,” the statement read.
