Bookmakers at the Palms Casino are taking odds on various scenarios over the next few days. Take a look and place your wager.
THE DOOMSDAY SCENARIO: Fed up with their treatment from both the NBA and Sacramento city leaders, the Maloofs decide to sell -- but not to Ron Burkle. They sell to Anaheim's Henry Samueli, throwing the team into the hands of a man determined to rip the team from Sacramento at any cost. Odds: 100-1
THE "REVERSAL OF FORTUNES" SCENARIO: The Maloofs file for relocation and somehow get the needed votes to okay the move. Sacramento is sucker-punched. ODDS: 40-1
THE "SHOVE-IT STERN" SCENARIO: The boys lose the vote, poke little David Stern in the eyes, defy the league, file a lawsuit, and take the team to Anaheim. ODDS: 35-1
THE HAPPY RETURN SCENARIO: Carmichael Dave joins hands with the Maloofs in a tearful celebration rally at Power Balance. The brothers vow to stay in Sacramento for the foreseeable future and work diligently to make a new arena happen. ODDS: 12-1
THE FIRE SALE SCENARIO: Forced to return to Sacramento, the Maloofs sell to Burkle in an effort to stave off bankruptcy. ODDS: 8-1
THE ONE-YEAR STALL SCENARIO: The Maloofs suck it up and allow the team to return to Sacramento, but feel determined to submarine any arena deal, giving the team a clear path to head for Anaheim the following season. ODDS: 5-2
