HEAT AND ARENA EXPERIENCE CHOPPY SEAS ON NEGOTIATION CRUISE
Published June 23, 1995
Talks between the Heat and the Miami Arena have broken down in "a fit of hard lines and tough talk," according to the MIAMI HERALD. While the Heat's lease does not expire until '98 and the team has not talked to other cities about moving, the team claims it has options. Heat General Counsel Eric Woolworth: "If Wayne Huizinga builds a new arena, that's an option. And there are plenty of cities around the country that have arenas that are trying to lure teams" (Judy Battista, MIAMI HERALD, 6/22).
