The Maloof family have been the majority owners of the Sacramento Kings of the NBA since 1999, and during that time have benefited from the loyalty and passion of fans of the team and the people of Sacramento. An aging facility and struggling economy have strained the relationship between the owners, the fanbase, and the city's citizens.

Despite these conditions, the loyalty and passion of fans and citizens has contributed to astonishing energy and dedication by public and private interests to secure the future of the franchise in Sacramento. The Maloof family, however, has shown through recent actions that it is no longer committed to continuing the mutually beneficial relationship between the team and the city. Supporters of this petition ask that the Maloofs do the right thing and sell the team to owners who will return the loyalty and passion of the people of Sacramento in kind, and will give the city the commitment it deserves.

      The Maloofs are holding onto the team for all the wrong reasons. The team belongs to the city that has passionately supported them for so long.

      I've been a Kings Fan since the early 2000s. The Kings are rebuilding with great players like Tyreke Evans, Isaiah Thomas, and DeMarcus Cousins. I don't want to see them in another city and uniform.

      I'm not a Sacramento Kings fan, yet I've long appreciated the franchise and its tremendous fans. They deserve better than how the Maloofs have conducted themselves as owners. The NBA should step in and force the sale of the franchise in order to ensure more responsible ownership.

      Kings fans deserve new owners. Plus, make sure everything is in writing and signed...no more "hand-shake" deals Mr. Mayor (duh).
