Kings owner George Maloof says again they want to sell team to Seattle group

George Maloof, one of the members of the family that owns the Sacramento Kings, said again today their desire is to sell the team to a Seattle group led by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer.

Maloof is in Dallas in advance of the NBA Board of Governors meetings tomorrow, and in a brief interview as he walked through the lobby, reiterated the family’s long stance about selling the team to the Seattle group.

“We have a binding agreement,” he said. “That’s our commitment, to Chris and Steve. We want to see it through.”

Maloof said he couldn’t make any other realĀ  comment other than to say he was “here to see what happens” tomorrow when the BOG is expected to cast a final vote on the Seattle/Sacramento tug-of-war over the Kings.

An NBA spokesman also said today that there will be no official meetings today and unlikely any comment from the league.
