HAWKS & KNIGHTS STILL LOOKING FOR A HOME IN ATLANTA

     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).
