BICKERSTAFF'S NEW NUGGETS ROLE WAS NO DEMOTION FOR LEIWEKE

     Despite reports characterizing Nuggets President Tim
Leiweke's reassignment last week as a step down, today's DENVER
POST describes the change as "hardly a demotion."  Leiweke now
shifts from "overseeing the Nuggets basketball operations to
heading COMSAT's Rocky Mountain Entertainment."  And, with that
position, Leiweke has become "something of an entertainment czar
in the Central Platte Valley."  Leiweke will be responsible for
atrracting an NHL team to Denver and managing construction of a
proposed $130M "state-of-the-art" arena.  Leiweke:  "People ended
up thinking it was some sort of power struggle, and it wasn't"
(Chance Conner, DENVER POST, 3/2).
