Got $500 Million? Ad Lists Kings for Sale
It’s a “For Sale” ad like so many thousands of others on Craigslist, with a startling price, $500 million – in exchange for your princely sum – the Sacramento Kings.
The ad is clearly a joke, but the subject is deathly serious for those loyal to the purple and black. Attached to the ad, a link to the blog, ‘A Royal Pain’ that suggests along with a USA Today article that the current Kings monarchs, the Maloof brothers, have privately named an asking price of $500 million.
After months of rumors, speculation and denials about a possible cross-country move to Virginia Beach, there is even the name of a possible white knight for Sacramento fans – billionaire Ron Burkle.
FOX40 reached out to members of the Kings staff about the ad, but have not heard a response.
