Kings players are looking forward to a basketball season as much as fans are looking forward to seeing their favorite players again at Power Balance Pavilion.

Kings forward Donte Greene told FOX40, "It seems like we have a fair deal."

The agreement between players and the NBA is only tentative. Until the deal is finalized, the Kings organization says a gag order remains in effect for Kings employees, but not players.

The head of public relations for the Kings could only say, "The tentative agreement is great news for our fans, players and our organization. We are very hopeful the NBA will be back on the court on Christmas day."

Greene is thinking about the fans too.

"Thanks for hanging in there with us," he said.
