Since the announcement of plans to sell the Sacramento Kings to a Seattle-based group, numerous area residents and politicians have spoken up in opposition.
This week, another group could add its voice: The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors.
At its meeting Wednesday, the body will consider a resolution asking the NBA to keep the team in Sacramento.
The league's governing body has the final say over whether the Maloof brothers can sell the team and let it be relocated to Seattle, and a group of Sacramento investors says it will present a counter-offer before the league.
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson said Tuesday that group of investors will have its offer ready by March 1.
The resolution set to be discussed this week by the board of supervisors references the support the Kings have had in the area, and the downtown arena deal struck last year. The board says it "strongly supports keeping the Sacramento Kings in the City of Sacramento, and respectfully requests that the N.B.A. act accordingly."
