HOUSTON (AP) - NBA Commissioner David Stern expects a concrete plan from Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson within the next two weeks, with the aim of settling the Kings' future by mid-April.
Johnson is trying to keep the Kings in his city rather than let them move to Seattle.
Stern says Johnson will attend the April 17-18 owners meeting in New York to deliver his proposal, but Stern says that ``if the mayor follows through on what he's told us, we'll have it comfortably by March 1.''
Speaking at an All-Star weekend event, Stern also says he doesn't currently see ``a push for expansion'' among owners, knocking down the idea that both cities could end up with teams.
A Seattle group led by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer has reached an agreement to purchase the Kings and plans to move them.
