BET'S JOHNSON ONLY WANTS PART OF BULLETS BUT WITH A CLAUSE
Published November 22, 1994
BET President Robert Johnson said yesterday that he has no interest in becoming a part owner of the Bullets "unless he knows he'll have the option in the future to buy a controlling interest." Bullets/Caps owner Abe Pollin recently told associates that he would consider offers from potential partners. Johnson has been "jockeying to become part" of an downtown arena deal by offering to guarantee repayment of city bonds if Pollin would let him buy a share of the Bullets now, with an option for more of the team later (Howard Schneider, WASHINGTON POST, 11/22).
