BITOVE: EXPANSION DRAFT WILL BE SHOWN, SOME WAY, SOME HOW
Published February 22, 1995
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).
