Source: Sacramento could have a harder time keeping Kevin Johnson than keeping the Kings at this point. As it
stands, if the current Sacramento group matches the essential elements of the agreement with the group in Seattle, the league committee weighing the two offers is expected to recommend keeping the Kings where they are. Vivek Ranadive, the Warriors minority owner who picked up the flag for Sacramento, has been a game-changer, second only to Johnson, sources say. The former NBA point guard, one source says, has blown away NBA owners with his preparation and delivery to the point they want to find a way to get him into the league front office. Still remains to be seen what those essential elements are and if the Sacramento group can deliver them in a deal by Friday, but after all Johnson has accomplished, nothing seems to be beyond his capabilities at this point.
