NBA to Louisville?

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Now that the Sacramento Kings are reportedly about to move to Seattle, what does it mean for Louisville's chances of getting an NBA team?

Sacramento had been mentioned as a possible team for Louisville to pursue.

But, Mayor Greg Fischer says this new development really doesn't affect things here at all.

He says, right now, the city is far from ready to go after an NBA franchise.

"We are not actively working on any specific team right now.  We're doing an economic analysis to see if this would be a good business proposition for our city," Fischer said, "Those results should be here toward the end of February, end of March.  So, this is something that could take years, if it ever develops."

Meanwhile, the "Bring the NBA to Louisville" Facebook group plans to host another event to talk about the possibility Friday evening.

It'll take place at the Bearno's on Main Street, next to the KFC Yum! Center, beginning at 6:30.
