Attempted Move to Kansas City
An investment group in Kansas City had an interest in moving the Sting to Kansas City. The Sting were to play in the Sprint Center, which was due to open in the Fall of 2007. The city has not had an NBA team since the Kings' move to Sacramento, California after the 1984-85 season.
The Sting Fold
After months of talk and deliberation between the league and the investors; the plans would ultimately fall through. On January 3, 2007, the Bobcats announced that the fundraising effort by a group seeking to move the team to Kansas City had failed. The team would fold immediately, and the players would be sent to the other teams in the league via a dispersal draft.
