Maloofs to sell Kings to Seattle group headed by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer

Yahoo! Sports NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski has the breaking story.

Didn’t expect the Maloofs to act this quickly, but it lines up with all of the rumbling coming out of Seattle. Celebration in one town equals heartbreak in another. What will it mean for Sacramento’s future in terms of pro sports? Mayor Kevin Johnson could pivot towards the A’s, though A’s ownership hasn’t shown interest so far.

More as the situation develops.

Update 2:00 PM – CBS Sacramento reporter Steve Large tweeted something different from the prevailing reports on the way up to Seattle.

It’s the Maloofs. Expect nothing less than a big, ugly mess.
