NEW YORK (AP) - Representatives from Sacramento and Seattle are making their presentations before NBA owners, hoping to show their city is the best home for the Kings franchise.

A Seattle group headed by investor Chris Hansen and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has a pending agreement with the Maloof family to buy 65 percent of the team and move it back to the city the SuperSonics left in 2008. Sacramento has put together its own group to make a competing bid.

The sides are meeting Wednesday with members of the Advisory Finance and Relocation committees, comprised of 12 owners.

A group of Sacramento fans wearing Kings jerseys gathered in front of a hotel to greet their side's contingent, led by Mayor Kevin Johnson.

A vote is expected during the owners meeting on April 18-19.
