Burkle wasn't involved in Sacramento until recently when the proposed downtown arena surfaced, hence why Mastrov is the bidder for the Kings if they stay... Precedence and an Al Davis type lawsuit will definitely follow if the Hansen deal is blocked.
The Al Davis type lawsuit will only work if Hansen is approved as new owner of the Kings and the NBA block relocation.
