Sacramento bid short

NBA Commissioner David Stern says the counteroffer to keep the Sacramento Kings from moving to Seattle needs to be increased before the league’s owners can consider it. Stern said Friday that the Sacramento group’s bid has some “very strong financial people behind it but it is not quite there.” He said “unless it increases, it doesn’t get to the state of consideration.” Stern also said there will be a meeting April 3 in New York to avoid rushing debate on the issue at the NBA Board of Governors meeting April 18. A group led by 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov submitted a counteroffer for the Kings last month. – AP
