The panel released its report Friday.  It says a group led by developer David Taylor and the sports facility firm ICON Venue Group has the best potential to succeed.

Task Force co-chair Chris Lehane says the newly-formed group's experience more than offsets the lack of detail.

Lehane: "You have in ICON, a group that has done successful entertainment and sports complexes around the country - if not around the globe.  And then David Taylor, you had someone who has had tremendous success developing public-private partnership projects in the Sacramento area."

The task force report now goes to the city council, which will discuss the arena proposals on Tuesday.  Council members aren't expected to pick which group to move forward with for another couple of weeks.
