Dave Lucchetti Rumors

According to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, Dave Lucchetti, one of the remaining Sacramento Kings limited partners, has decided to invoke his right of first refusal and claim Bob Cook’s 7-percent share of the team currently sitting in California bankruptcy court. Last week, it was announced that prospective SuperSonics owner Chris Hansen had agreed to purchase the stake in the Kings’ franchise for $15.1 million. But according to the purchase agreement, the Kings minority owners were given a 15-day window to match Hansen’s bid. The decision comes on the eve of the meeting between the NBA’s combined finance/relocation meeting and members from both the Sacramento and Seattle delegations. Sean Cunningham: John Kehriotis told me last week that he would be looking at Bob Cook’s 7%. Can’t confirm yet that he was the partner to claim it
