BULLETS OWNER ABE POLLIN MULLS NAME CHANGE

     "In addition to new uniforms, a new logo, and new colors,"
the Bullets will apparently be getting a new name, according to
Richard Justice of the WASHINGTON POST.  Sources said yesterday
that Owner Abe Pollin has decided that when the Bullets leave
USAir Arena after the '96-97 season for the proposed downtown MCI
Center, "they'll no longer be the Bullets."  Justice reports that
Pollin will allow fans to select the new name later this year in
a name-the-team contest, reportedly to be sponsored by Boston
Market.  The Washington Post is also discussing a possible
promotional role in the endeavor (WASHINGTON POST, 8/22).
