This would be the strangest professional sports relocation in, well, maybe ever.
Inside Business, a Hampton Roads, Va.-based website, using unnamed sources, is reporting that the owners of the Sacramento Kings and officials from Comcast-Spectacor are considering moving the NBA team to the resort city ofVirginia Beach and for Comcast to help build and lease a new pro sports arena.
City officials and the Maloof family are expected to announce Wednesday that the Kings will land in Virginia Beach, the sources said.
Right now, there seems to be a lot of skepticism around the Twittersphere regarding this potential bombshell development. The Kings have been long-rumored to be on their last legs in California’s capitol, but you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who had Virginia Beach on the short list of new homes.
