The Maloofs continue to consider the possibility of selling the Sacramento Kings to a group that intends to keep the team from relocating to Seattle, according to a source.

Reports over the weekend indicated that the Kings have an alternative plan in place to sell a smaller stake to the Seattle-based group led by Chris Hansen.

But the Maloofs "still has that option," said a source of the Sacramento offer.

The Sacramento group is offering $341 million.

The Maloofs "intend to be loyal to Hansen to the bitter end," the source said. The Maloofs also do not feel that the Sacramento bid is complete or competitive.
