Rationale behind Kings only playing 1 NBA game?

I'm curious to the rationale behind the Kings only playing 1 NBA game. They have one of, if not the most talented team in the NBL and probably provide the best advertisement for our league with world class players like Randle and Bogut. Why didn't we give them two games, instead of some other teams?

And you know for sure they wanted to play more than one?

Wildcats cried so got two games after having none last season.

They will be banned from the games next season depending on how they perform in Denver so Kings should get more.

They are the spoon team. They shouldn't even be there regardless of who they signed.

The teams have to pay for these games. It isn't just charity from Kestleman. It costs $80,000 for each game and that's not including travel and flight costs. Sydney may have decided that 1X$80,000 bill is enough.

How does it cost them $80k? And *not* including travel and flights?

I thought the Kings are one of the more cashed-up teams in the league.

Is there any source for this claim?
