City Councilman Jay Schenirer, left, chats with Gavin Maloof, center, and Joe Maloof at a Kings game last month, a day after the council approved a nonbinding term sheet to finance a $391 million arena. The Maloofs now dispute some terms.

Do you think the Kings will move to Virginia Beach?

Your vote has been counted, thank you for voting.

Inside Business, a Hampton Roads, Va.-based website, using unnamed sources, is reporting that the owners of the Sacramento Kings and officials from Comcast-Spectacor are considering moving the NBA team to the resort city of Virginia Beach and for Comcast to help build and lease a new pro sports arena.

City officials and the Maloof family are expected to announce Wednesday that the Kings will land in Virginia Beach, the sources said.

"Comcast, Live Nation and Global Spectrum have come to the city," Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms said last week. "They would guarantee us a professional sports team if the deal goes through."
