HAWKS POOR SHOWING AT THE GATE WON'T DETER ARENA PLANS

     Hawks President Stan Kasten says poor attendance at the Omni
"will not influence their decision on whether to build a new
arena," according to Sunday's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.  Atlanta
averaged 12,312 fans per game this year, down 1,023 from last
season.  The team announced they would build an arena either in
downtown Atlanta or the city's Northern suburbs a year ago, but
have yet to make a decision on where the facility will be
located.  Kasten: "We have to make this decision (soon).  We're
still buttoning up a lot of stuff, analyzing more than one
solution, dealing with multiple sites and multiple
municipalities.  There are incredibly complex issues" (Tim
Tucker, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/7).
