DOES THE NEW WARRIORS OWNER KNOW THE WAY TO SAN JOSE?
Published October 27, 1994
Warriors Owner Chris Cohan, who is considering moving the franchise to San Francisco or San Jose, last night attended a Warriors exhibition game at San Jose Arena. Prior to the game, Cohan took a tour of the facility and said he was "open-minded" about a move to San Jose: "It's a nice place, no question about that." Warriors President Dan Finnane has spent the past 18 months trying to build a new arena for the Warriors in the Bay Area. Cohan's attorney, Robin Baggett, said that the San Jose Arena falls a "few seats short of what we're looking for, but it's there. In California, that says a lot." Cohan said that he expects to make a decision by June. Attendance for last night's game was 15,166 (Bud Geracie, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 10/27).
