08:09 AM ET 01.11 | The only thing nicer than raising a banner to the rafters is to give it some company, which is clearly on the mind of Kings exec Tim Leiweke. [When the Kings raise their banner] it will be displayed not as a memento but as a promise. "We're going to do something different," Leiweke said, "so we have room to hang the others." The others -- as in other championship banners. And for once in the existence of this often-cursed franchise, that can be said without causing laughter or spit takes in response. ... "We're committed to spending whatever it takes to win again. We're committed to spending whatever it takes to keep this nucleus together," Leiweke said Thursday at a kickoff news conference at Staples Center.

From what I understood, they had the whole kit and kaboodle locked up for a little while, so this would not come as a surprise to me...

that's because his agent is insisting on a "canoodling" clause in the contract
