DALLAS -- The Kings are staying in Sacramento, and Seattle will have to wait for another NBA franchise. As for the ownership question that has kept the Kings in limbo for years, Commissioner David Stern wants it settled now. League owners voted Wednesday to follow the recommendation of their relocation committee and reject an aggressive bid to move the Kings, and Stern promptly announced that he hoped to have a deal in place in 48 hours with a group that wants to buy the team from the Maloof brothers. "And now we think that because the Maloofs have overall been very good for Sacramento and the Kings and the NBA, that they will be motivated to do something fast so that the franchise can get cracking," Stern said. The 22-8 vote by the Board of Governors rejected a deal that would have sold a 65 per cent controlling interest at a total franchise valuation of $625 million to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen, who boosted the offer twice after the NBA showed an unwillingness to relocate. Now the Maloofs will try to complete a deal at Hansens original price of $525 million -- still topping the NBA record of $450 million -- with a group put together by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former All-Star guard, and fronted by TIBCO software chairman Vivek Ranadive. The plan includes a new downtown arena. "The committee decided -- didnt have any preconceived notions -- but looking at both evenly they said that the edge went to the incumbent, so thats the way it came out," Stern said. The vote ended an emotional saga that has dragged on for nearly three years. Hansen wanted to move the franchise and rename it the SuperSonics, who left Seattle for Oklahoma City in 2008 and were renamed the Thunder. Hansen said in a statement posted on his website that he hoped to pursue a minority ownership role with the Maloofs, but Ranadive said his partners "havent really considered" the Maloofs maintaining a stake in the franchise. Stern praised Hansens proposal and said the NBA might consider expansion once a new TV deal is in place, but said "we dont have anything concrete." "Our day will come, and when it does, it will just be that much sweeter for the struggle," Hansen said. Its the second time since 2011 that the Maloof brothers have made plans that would have ended in relocation for the Kings. The first target was Anaheim, Calif., but Johnson convinced the NBA to give the city another chance to finance a new arena. Johnson delivered on a promise for a plan for a new downtown arena with help from Stern, but the Maloofs backed out, saying it didnt make financial sense. The Maloofs had another surprise when they announced a deaal in January with Hansens group, which includes Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and members of the Nordstrom department store family.dddddddddddd Johnson fought back again, this time lining up an ownership group led by Ranadive and getting the Sacramento City Council to approve a non-binding financing plan for a $447 million arena with a $258 million public subsidy. "This is an ownership group thats played to win and kept us in the game, and put us in a situation where ultimately over the next couple days, if things go right, we can close this out and move to a new chapter in Sacramento," Johnson said. The potential Sacramento ownership group also includes 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov, former Facebook senior executive Chris Kelly and the Jacobs family that owns communications giant Qualcomm. In a letter sent to the relocation and finance committees during its April 17 meeting, the Maloofs said they preferred to sell to the Seattle group and expressed discontent with Sacramentos bid, saying it fell "significantly short." After Wednesdays vote, however, George Maloof denied that his family wasnt willing to sell to the Ranadive group and that the league was pressuring them to do so. "Its been a fair process, a very fair process," Maloof said. Hansen spent nearly two years working to get an arena plan approved by the city and county governments and spent more than $65 million buying land in Seattles SoDo neighbourhood where the arena would be built. Hansen has a five-year memorandum of understanding with the city and county on the arena plan. A small crowd at a Seattle restaurant was subdued as word spread that the franchise wasnt coming, while horns blared and cheers erupted from bars in Sacramento. "In Kevin Johnson we trust," said season ticket holder Jim Amen, who wore the jersey of No. 16 Peja Stojakovic, the Kings first-round draft pick in 1996. "This meant a lot to our city. Its not just about basketball, but about revitalizing our downtown." About a dozen Sacramento supporters wearing Kings jerseys and "Small Market Big Heart" T-shirts waited most of the day in the Dallas hotel to hear what turned out to be good news. But Johnson didnt want to celebrate at the expense of a couple of men who showed up in green and gold Sonics gear. "I went to Seattle," he said. "I played against those fans in that community. Its a great sports town, its a great basketball community. And for them to come up a little short, especially with what happened in 2008 to have lost their team, thats devastating. Thats why we fought so hard." Now Johnsons group just has to finish the deal. ' ' '
