08:08 AM ET 04.11 | Yet again, the clock is ticking on a deadline. The Maloof family has given the Sacramento investors seeking to buy the Kings until 5 p.m. Friday to submit a written, binding "back-up" offer that matches the deal the family has in place to sell the franchise to a group in Seattle, a source close to the deal told The Bee today. The source told the Bee that if the Maloofs receive a matching offer by Friday, they will consider it as a serious back-up proposal should the NBA nullify their tentative deal with Seattle. If the offer doesn't arrive, or doesn't match the Seattle bid, the Maloofs have said any talks are off with the Sacramento group. The source declined further comment about who issued the ultimatum, when, or why.

Sacramento has no chance. Time to waive the white flag. Why prolong the agony?

They waived the white flag years ago. Oh, you mean about moving.

Actually Sacramento has a great chance and the white flag has never been waived. The bid to keep the Kings in Sac is a strong one. The Maloofs are trying to punk them out yet again when ultimately the final decision rests with the NBA.
