CITY, MAVERICKS AGREE TO WORK FOR ARENA DEAL IN NEXT 30 DAYS

     The City of Dallas and the Mavericks are working "toward
striking a deal within 30 days" on a proposed new arena in
downtown Dallas, according to this morning's FORT WORTH STAR-
TELEGRAM.  In discussions between both sides this week, the
option of renovating 15-year-old Reunion Arena has been
mentioned, according to Dallas Councilman Chris Luna.  Mavericks
owner Don Carter has said in the past he wants a new arena, with
Reunion torn down so it doesn't compete  with that facility.
Mayor Pro Tem Domingo Garcia told the paper "he now favors
renovation."  Claiming that five of the 15 members on the council
agree with him, Garcia says the teams "no longer have us over a
barrel," and that Reunion could be renovated with 48 luxury boxes
and added club seats for $20M (Thomas Korosec, FORT WORTH STAR-
TELEGRAM, 1/27).
