Tycoons line up for shot at team

Three key points: 1. Sacramento has its own big-money guy: Southern California billionaire Ron Burkle, who has been interested in buying the Kings for a year or longer. City officials say Burkle, or someone like him, could step into the picture if the Maloofs don't like the arena proposal but the NBA approves it. 2. Also, the new NBA revenue-sharing formula could provide the Kings with another $10 million a year when it takes full effect in about two years, said Matt Parlow, a sports-business expert at Marquette University. 3. The Kings' TV revenue – currently pegged by experts at around $12 million a year – could similarly grow. Comcast SportsNet has said it might renegotiate the contract if the Kings make a long-term commitment to Sacramento. Parlow said the deal could increase by $10 million a year.
