So on Thursday at 10 a.m. David Flemmer, a trustee in charge of former Sacramento Kings minority owner Bob Cook's bankruptcy proceeding, will ask a judge to expand the scope of the work that the law firm working the case will do. That expansion, according to the motion filed by Flemmer on Tuesday?

Representation of the Cook Estate with regard to investigation and analysis of the Cook Estate’s rights, and potential filing of possible claims, arising from or related to the executed Purchase and Sale Agreement for the "transfer of a controlling interest in the Sacramento Kings" ...

In an application to have the matter heard today, Flemmer cites the reports that the NBA is already vetting the purchase agreement as reason there's no time to waste. It's reasonable to think that if the judge does accept the motion, a move to block the sale -- even temporarily -- could be coming quickly.

Surely, Chris Hansen will send someone to the court this morning. ... Right?
