An NBA spokesperson said this morning that the league’s Relocation/Finance Committee will meet Monday via teleconference, at which time it is expected to make its recommendation on the fate of the Sacramento Kings.
League by-laws require a grace period of seven business days from the time of the recommendation to the final, binding vote by the NBA’s Board of Governors. So that means the earliest the vote could happen is May 8 (but they don’t have to vote that day — by-laws say the vote has to happen no earlier than 7 and no later than 30 days after a recommendation).
Here is our story for the Thursday paper laying out the process ahead (though written before the news of this morning that a date had been set for the next committee meeting).
The members of the Relocation/Finance committee are: Peter Holt, Spurs (chairman of the Board of Governors), Clay Bennett (Thunder), James Dolan (Knicks), Herb Simon (Pacers), Larry Tanenbaum (Raptors), Glen Taylor (Timberwolves), Jeanie Buss (Lakers), Robert Sarver (Suns), Greg Miller (Jazz), Wyc Grousbeck (Celtics), Ted Leonsis (Wizards) and Micky Arison (Heat).
