NBA committee votes to keep Kings in Sacramento, deny move to Seattle

The NBA has just announced that the Relocation/Finance Committee voted unanimously today against moving the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.

Here is the statement:

The NBA announced today that the league’s Relocation Committee has unanimously recommended that the NBA Board of Governors deny the application of the Sacramento Kings to relocate to Seattle. The Board will convene during the week of May 13 to vote on this matter.

The committee met today via a conference call.

The recommendation will now be voted on by the NBA’s Board of Governors, but it is unlikely the board will  go against the recommendation.

The 12 members of the Relocation/Finance committee who will make the recommendation 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).
