Worthy of its own discussion

Twitter is an amazing thing.  We try not to speculate too much on goings on down there but this is all too much.  Here is the flurry of new info all in one place:

City mgr’s office tells us they will not officially reveal whales’ names (Burkle and Mastrov) until whales announce they want to buy team

That means the council will be asked to approval negotiating principles Tuesday without having been formally told who the city is talking to

Asst. City Mgr John Dangberg: Formal negotiations could begin as early as Wednesday, if council says OK. #NBAKings

Dangberg: City goal is to present a “term sheet” agreement to council for vote prior to April 18 NBA meeting/vote on future of Kings

"After the Council agenda had been posted (Thursday), the mayor's office informed the city manager that discussions with the parties considering an offer to purchase the Sacramento Kings are proceeding well and that the city should be prepared to commence formal negotiations relating to the development of a new downtown entertainment and sports center," the city manager's office wrote. "To provide the City Council and public with as much time as possible for discourse and to be responsive to any request to commence negotiations, this item has been scheduled for Tuesday February 26. A staff report with the guiding principles is being prepared and will be available to the City Council and public as soon as possible. We apologize that the report will not be available until Monday, but given the circumstances we believe it is best to initiate the public discussion as soon as possible rather than postpone that discussion for another week."

With vote set for Tuesday, whale landings may in fact happen Monday or Tuesday one would think.
