08:08 AM ET 12.03 | At some point, perhaps Joe and Gavin Maloof will discuss their plans. Based on numerous conversations with family members and NBA executives, the Kings' majority owners -- who attend all home games but decline to speak publicly about the arena situation -- are paralyzed by a fear of stumbling into another political and public relations quagmire. While evaluating options elsewhere -- and, yes, Virginia Beach, Va., is a serious possibility -- they are searching for reasons to remain. ... The team's lack of improvement and charisma have left Petrie with few allies among the owners. His contract expires at the end of the season, and if the trend continues, he could be gone within weeks. The Maloofs wholeheartedly endorse Keith Smart.

"The Maloofs wholeheartedly endorse Keith Smart."

Who refuses to play the only much improved and charismatic player on the team? Whose PER is currently 30th in the NBA this season and leading the Kings. Why the strong endorsement?

There is No way V.B. is gonna support a Pro team over the long haul...

Markets that I think would be more viable:

San Diego, Baltimore, Seattle (if they can square away the arena), VEGAS (if Stern open up to possibility).
