NBA: The Sacramento Kings appear to be headed to Seattle. The NBA is confirming the Maloof family has agreed to a deal to sell the team to a Seattle-based investment group. The league issued a statement saying the proposed sale is now under review and is subject to approval of the NBA's Board of Governors.
The sale price has been reported to be around 525-million-dollars. If the sale is approved, the Kings are expected to relocate to Seattle's Key Arena next season and be renamed the Super Sonics. The original Sonics left Seattle to become the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008.
PGA Tour: Phil Mickelson says he will make "drastic changes" because of federal and California state tax increases. The 42-year-old golfer said he would talk in more detail about his plans -- possibly moving away from California or even retiring from golf -- before his hometown Farmers Insurance Open, the San Diego-area event that starts Thursday at Torrey Pines.
In November, California voters approved Proposition 30, the first statewide tax increase since 2004. It boosted the state tax rate on incomes of more than $1 million from 10.3 percent to 13.3 percent.
