Mastrov Meets With Kings' Investors

Mark Mastrov, the founder of 24-Hour Fitness and potential buyer of the Sacramento Kings, reportedly met with local investors who have committed $1 million each towards the team.

According to the Sacramento Bee, Mastrov is very interested in teaming up with business magnate Ron Burkle to make a bid towards keeping the team in Sacramento.

Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson is expected to lobby in front of the NBA Board of Governors and convince them to strike down the current deal in place by the Maloofs to sell the Kings to a Seatte-based investment group.
