Audio —- Kevin Johnson says 90 percent chance Kings stay in Sacramento

Recent events in Sacramento appear to have mayor Kevin Johnson showing growing confidence that the Kings will stay put

In an interview today on The Dan Patrick Show (which can be heard locally on 850 AM from 6-9 a.m. on weekdays) Johnson  said  he thinks there is a “90 percent” change the Kings stay put rather than relocate to Seattle.

He also noted that teams usually only move if there is a lack of support or lack of a quality arena. He said both of those were in place in Seattle when the Sonics left, saying “they weren’t getting the support they needed and they couldn’t build a building.”
