Kings May Sell Part of the Team

The Los Angeles Daily News is reporting that the owners of the Los Angeles Kings are considering selling a part-interest in the team. Though AEG would retain control, they have spoken to several parties about the deal, including the Boston Celtics ownership group.

In a phone interview Thursday, Kings governor and AEG president Tim Leiweke confirmed that he has spoken to the ownership group of the Celtics, led by Wycliffe "Wyc" Grousbeck, about a "partnership."

"Wyc and I have talked about the Kings, but so have I and a lot of other people," Leiweke said. "There is no deal with myself and Wyc, and there have been a half-dozen people who have been very interested."

No Jim Balsillie?
