The NBA has settled on Cal Expo as the preferred location for a new Kings arena, according to sources familiar with the league's behind-the-scenes effort to build the team a new home in Sacramento.This seems like a bad idea to me. I have to agree with Sharon's reaction when I told her the story this morning: "oh, gross."
Despite its location on one of Sacramento's worst freeway bottlenecks, Cal Expo appeals to the NBA because it offers a ready supply of vacant land and a name already recognized as an entertainment destination, said the sources, who asked not to be identified because the league hasn't yet unveiled its proposal.
NBA Commissioner David Stern has said he will reveal his plan for a new arena about the time the basketball season starts this fall.
