SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) The Sacramento Kings will have a new name for their arena.

The team on Monday announced a multiyear naming rights deal with Sleep Train Mattress Centers.

The arena in Sacramento was called Power Balance Pavilion last season but the Kings were looking for a new partner after Power Balance filed for bankruptcy.

The name change will become official in November. The Kings' home opener this season is Nov. 5 against the Golden State Warriors.
