Upcoming Conferences and Events
CANADIAN TEAMS CLOSE IN ON NUMBER -- RAPTORS MOVE ON ARENA
Published December 20, 1994
The Grizzlies and Raptors have scheduled news conferences for today and tomorrow at which each are expected to announce that they have reached the NBA's mandate of 12,500 season tickets. The Grizzlies will hold a press conference this afternoon to announce the news. The Raptors may have more good news, as today's TORONTO SUN reports the team is close to finalizing a deal for their arena site. The team has made a revised proposal for the Canada Post building, and details could be approved by both parties by Christmas (Frank Zicarelli, TORONTO SUN, 12/20).
