Report: Kings Have Recently Talked to San Jose About Relocation

And the roller coaster begins another descent. The San Jose Mercury News's Tracy Seipel has an in-depth story today on the plot of the operators of San Jose's HP Pavilion to bring an NBA team to town. Seipel quotes the CEO of the company that owns the NHL's Sharks and runs the Pavilion as saying he has talked to several NBA teams about relocation. And then there's this:

[A] source familiar with the situation said Jamison in recent months has met with the owners of the Sacramento Kings, who are looking for an alternative to aging Arco Arena.

Though it's far from certain that the Kings will ever play a game in San Jose, things have apparently moved far enough ahead that the San Jose City Council as early as month's end will vote on a "memorandum of understanding" that would guide negotiations with any National Basketball Association team.

In case you missed it, this is what Gavin Maloof told The Bee last week in Sacramento regarding the chance the team could relocate:

"No, no, no. There's no way," Maloof told The Bee Wednesday, waving his arms emphatically. "We love the market. We love our fans. This is the only place we want to be."

Someone is not telling the truth here. You be the judge on who that would be.
