6:05 am on 3 May 2011

The Sacramento Kings NBA basketball club will remain in the California capital for at least one more season after dropping plans to relocate to Anaheim.

The Maloof family, owners of the Kings, had been investigating a move to Orange County after its efforts to secure a new arena deal in Sacramento stalled.

However a statement said they were staying, for now.

The Kings had until yesterday to file relocation papers with the NBA.
