Sacramento Looks at FedExForum

The Grizzlies home, FedExForum, has been in the news a lot lately...

Now it's getting scrutiny from another NBA City...and this is a compliment.

A group of Sacramento City Officials, including Vice Mayor Rob Fong, were in Memphis Friday touring FedExForum.

They've chosen it as the model for Sacramento's proposed new arena for the Kings.

The $250 Million Dollar price tag Memphians paid in 2004 is considered a steal.

Skyrocketing construction costs, and generally higher prices in the Western U.S. push the cost for a similar building in Sacramento closer to $300 Million.

The Kings current home, Arco Arena, is only 18-years old.
