THE MAVS' CARTER DOESN'T WANT A REUNION IN HIS FRONT YARD
Published December 16, 1994
Negotiations between the City of Dallas and Mavericks Owner Don Carter over the construction of a new downtown arena adjacent to Reunion Arena hinge on the demolition of Reunion. Carter and team officials believe having side-by-side arenas "makes no economic sense." City Council members and Dallas Mayor Steve Bartlett are wary of destroying a 14-year-old facility for which they still owe around $62M. Bartlett: "I think the feeling on the council is strong that we need to look for a reuse, and we don't want a reuse that is incompatible with a new arena." Carter is willing to cover $65M of the $142M cost for the new arena in exchange for naming rights and control over major decisions involving the facility (Sylvia Martinez, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 12/14).
