Kings sale: Stern says vote at least two weeks away

NEW YORK — NBA Commissioner David Stern said Wednesday that a decision on the future home of the Kings franchise is still at least two weeks away.
Stern told reporters after a meeting of owners considering the team's sale that it could be early next month before it's known if the team is staying in Sacramento or heading to Seattle.
"I would be charitable to say the first week in May, but it could slide a bit," Stern said. "That's where we are."
Stern said the committee will brief the full board of governors during their two-day meetings Thursday and Friday, but that there will be no vote. He said the committee, comprised of 12 owners, has a number of questions regarding real estate and legal matters.
He added that it's likely they will meet again next week, either in person or via teleconference.
A Seattle group led by hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen has a deal to purchase 65 percent of the franchise from the Maloof family, and Sacramento has put together a group to make a backup offer. NBA officials have refused to say if the second bid matches Seattle's.
Stern reiterated that expansion has not been discussed.
