So, Kings stay in Sacramento
The developments of these past few weeks – the NBA voting down the team's relocation and the Maloofs selling their majority interest to Ranadive's group – were reflected in the sights, sounds and mood inside Sleep Train Arena on Monday.
Prints and photos featuring the Maloofs still decorated the hallway near the abandoned executive suites, but except for a few trash bins and boxes, Joe and Gavin Maloofs' offices had been cleared out.
The eerie quiet contrasted sharply with the energy in the sales office at the other side of the building. While rows of cubicles remained empty, a dozen or so employees could be overheard on their phones, chatting with current season-ticket holders. When a customer renews, the employee taps a bell atop the desk.
