BREAKING: Maloofs Finalizing Deal To Sell Kings

According to Y! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, the Maloof brothers are close to finalizing a deal that would sell the NBA's Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer.  Reports have it that the Hansen-Ballmer group will be moving the Kings to Seattle.  Ballmer is Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's CEO.  Seattle has not had an NBA franchise since Clay Bennett moved the Super Sonics to Oklahoma City prior to the 2008-09 season.

Here is Wojnarowski's progression of tweets:

There had been reports floating around last summer/fall that the Kings were looking to move to the Virginia Beach area, but ultimately plans for an arena and funding fell through.  Stay tuned for details!
