Developer joins effort to keep Kings in Sacramento

Sacramento developer Mark Friedman is joining the bid to buy the Kings and build the team a new arena,  The Sacramento Bee is reporting.

Friedman’s announcement comes one day after Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said that Southern California billionaire Ron Burkle had to reduce his role in the project because of a conflict of interest. Johnson hinted at a press conference Monday that there might be additional changes in the ownership structure.

Johnson said he expects the final decision from the NBA on the Seattle/Sacramento saga to come when the NBA Board of Governors meets April 18-19 in New York.
