DOES THE NEW WARRIORS OWNER KNOW THE WAY TO SAN JOSE?

     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).
