Word on the street is that the Sacramento Kings have been sold and will file for relocation to Seattle for next season. I don’t follow the NBA, but I’ve always been interested in franchise movement regardless of the league, so that got me wondering… The Kings started as the Rochester Royals, then became the Cincinnati Royals, Kansas City Kings, Sacramento Kings and now (potentially) the Seattle SuperSonics.
Does anybody know of any other team in North America, or even the world, as nomadic as the Kings?
I can think of a team or two in each sport that have been in three cities, but nobody else who have been in four or more…
Boston / Milwaukee / Atlanta Braves
Philadelphia / Kansas City / Oakland Athletics
Chicago / St. Louis / Arizona Cardinals
Kansas City Scouts / Colorado Rockies / New Jersey Devils
Buffalo Braves / San Diego Clippers / Los Angeles Clippers
