With the big Kings vote now less than than a week away, the NBA is asking the Sacramento investors to put their entire 341-million-dollar purchase offer for the Kings in an escrow account. A league source tells the "Sacramento Bee" the money might help persuade the Maloof family to sign with the local group instead of accepting the offer from Seattle. The Maloofs have reportedly expressed concerns over the ability of the local investors to back up their offer for the team.
