AEG Eyeing Sacramento Arena Project

SACRAMENTO, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Anschutz Entertainment Group is considering making a bid to assist the city of Sacremento in their quest to build a new basketball arena.

"We have made the mayor aware that … any assistance he would like to ask us for, we would be interested," AEG spokesman Michael Roth told the Sacramento Bee. Such assistance would almost certainly be in the form of an infusion of cash, provided AEG could come to terms with the City and the NBA.

The City has been evaluating the potential of building a project been described as a mini L.A. Live, including an arena for the NBA team the Sacremento Kings and has formed a committee known as Think Big Sacramento to spearhead the project.

Sacramento deserves the best, and AEG represents exactly that," Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson told the Sacramento Bee. "Bringing on AEG would … guarantee our new entertainment and sports complex is developed and operated in truly world-class fashion." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
