Good Sports: RANADIVÉ’S KINGS TO TRAVEL TO INDIA

The Sacramento Kings and Indiana Pacers will face each other in two preseason games in Mumbai this October, marking the first games the National Basketball Association has played in India, as well as the first games staged in the country by a North American sports league.

“The Sacramento Kings are proud to be playing in the first NBA games ever held in India,” said Kings owner and chairman Vivek Ranadivé. “As an Indian-American, it is an honor to help bring this historic moment to the country where I was raised. The sport is experiencing tremendous growth in India, and we are excited about continuing to expand the NBA’s reach to fans across the globe.”

Ranadivé, 61, bought the Kings in 2013. The following year, the team hosted its first annual Bollywood Night, a celebration of Indian culture during an NBA game.
