CBA COMMISSIONIER HOPES TO KEEP HELLCATS IN HARTFORD
Published January 25, 1995
CBA Commissioner Tom Valdiserri told the HARTFORD COURANT he hopes the league can keep the "financially crippled" Hellcats in Hartford. Valdiserri made his comments to Owen Canfield of the COURANT, who writes the attendance of 10,039 for Tuesday's CBA All-Star Game shows that Hartford "is a basketball area." Valdiserri said the Hartford Sports & Entertainment Group and the Connecticut Development Authority are "entertaining offers for the purchase of the club." Valdiserri: "Will the team move if the league has to take it over? Not necessarily. We'll do everything we can to keep it here. What we have to do is put together an operating budget and see if the team can be run at a profit" (Owen Canfield, HARTFORD COURANT, 1/25).
