I asked Mayor Kevin Johnson's office whether they had heard the work was being put on hold, and the response was the same. "Absoluely not," said mayoral special assistant R.E. Graswich. "We have talked with the city and made it clear we will present a plan on how to get a new arena built regardless of the decision the Kings make," Mendelsohn said. "If the Kings decide to relocate, we will present an arena without the Kings. If they decide to stay, we will present a plan that includes the Kings as tenants." "We are committed to creating a plan that clearly lays out a plan to build an arena in Sacramento. That will happen regardless of what decision the Kings make. We believe like the mayor and the rest of the city that there should be a new arena no matter what."
