HAWKS & KNIGHTS STILL LOOKING FOR A HOME IN ATLANTA
Published April 6, 1995
A year after both the Hawks and Knights announced intentions to leave the Omni, both are still in search of a new home. Plans for a new facility in north suburban Fulton County are on hold, while the teams remain "in a holding pattern" as Atlanta officials lobby to keep them downtown. Hawks VP Lee Douglas says the team is "very, very active" in pursuing a new arena. The Knights are taking a "wait-and-see attitude," according to team CFO Charles Felix. Knights officials claim the economic risk of two suburban arenas is too high (Carlos Campos, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/6).
