Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property steps up for Sacramento Kings [ TLR Note: 1. As a reminder, TLR’s readers need not forget Friedman’s disquieting ties to CaliforniaALL scheme vis-a-vis Alison Turner, Kevin Johnson, Obama for America, Howard Dickstein, Jeannine English, and Keker’s Chris Young 2. Unlike others and similar to MO’s of Donna Lucas and Tom Girardi, Friedman prefers to run a clean operation by letting others do the dirty work for him. 3. Despite unfortunate fact Friedman and YR are on legal collusion course, TLR wishes Friedman best of luck, keep healthy distance from vulgar Ron Burkle]

The group bidding to purchase and keep the Kings in Sacramento introduced yet another change to its ownership structure today, adding a real estate developer with local ties to its team.

Mark Friedman, son of the late Mort Friedman whose investments revitalized Arden Fair Mall, has joined the prospective ownership group led by Vivek Ranadivé.  The news was first reported by the Sacramento Bee then announced officially by mayor Kevin Johnson at City Hall this morning.

“When we went to New York, we shared Mark’s name to the commissioner and the other ownership group,” Johnson said.  ”They were very pleased with Mark and his reputation and his family with what they’ve done in Sacramento.  And in fact, they thought that gives us one of our advantages…that we have such a strong local presence.”

Friedman is founder and president of Fulcrum Property, a real estate company experienced in retail, mixed-use and office development.  Some of Fulcrum’s projects include the Market West shopping center in Natomas, the Davis Commons in Davis and Market Square, which houses the United Artists movie theater at Arden Fair.

“I’m obviously a developer and part of the expertise that I bring to the table is how to put together projects,” Friedman said when asked of his possible role in the city and prospective ownership’s plan to build a new arena at the Downtown Plaza.  ”What we’ll do is we’ll bring together a great team to make sure that Sacramento gets the kind of facility it deserves.  But I’m just happy to lend some of that expertise to the partnership.”

Friedman’s addition follows Ron Burkle’s withdrawal from the major equity group due to a conflict of interest.  The supermarket magnate owns Relativity Media, which includes a sports management division that represents a number of active NBA players.  His involvement in the sports agent business would violate league policy, which led to his diminished role in the effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento.

The last-minute changes to the Sacramento group’s effort have raised questions among skeptics about the legitimacy of their bid.  The mayor once again contended today that it isn’t an issue and said the league offered their approval of Friedman’s addition with “two thumbs up”.

Burkle’s diminishing role and Friedman’s addition is not the first time changes have been made to the proposed ownership structure.  Within the last two-and-a-half weeks, Ranadivé has taken the lead on the private side while also recruiting the Jacobs family of Qualcomm to jump into the mix.

“The money wasn’t the interest, but it’s really trying to find the right roles,” Johnson said.  ”And now that Ron has to shift his role a little bit, he’s still part of this equation.  And we’re all trying to figure out how to do it in a really powerful way.”

Johnson and Friedman both say that they’ve been talking about the developer’s potential involvement since early January.  Friedman characterized his discussions as advisory, sharing his input on several areas of interest to the ownership group.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
