BITOVE: EXPANSION DRAFT WILL BE SHOWN, SOME WAY, SOME HOW

     Raptors President John Bitove says that contrary to a
statement by NBA operations VP Matt Winick, Canadian fans will
see the expansion draft on television.  Bitove: "One way or
another, we are committed to getting the draft on TV for our
fans.  That's sacrosanct."  Bitove says he will try and get an
agreement with a national network to carry the draft.  If that's
not possible, he will "enlist" local broadcast partner CITY-TV to
carry the draft in Ontario.  Bitove:  "The league told me over a
year ago that this was an idea they wanted to try.  I know
they're completely supportive" (Craig Daniels, TORONTO SUN,
2/22).
