SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings launched their new era in their old home.
With new ownership and a new coach and a renewed commitment to Sacramento, the Kings had a celebratory opening to their season Wednesday night.
After years of uncertainty about their future in Sacramento, the Kings are once again fully entrenched in California's capital city to the delight of their fans who grew tired of the old ownership led by the Maloof family.
New owner Vivek Ranadive repeated his commitment to have a new arena built in Sacramento by October 2016 as he opened a season fans here didn't know would happen until he bought the team last May and ended talk of a possible move to Seattle.
