STERN TO RULE ON RILEY-HEAT CASE THIS WEEK
Published August 29, 1995
NBA Commissioner David Stern "will likely" rule on the alleged tampering involving the Heat and Pat Riley this week, a league spokesperson said yesterday (Mike Wise, N.Y. TIMES, 8/29). Neither Stern, MSG President Dave Checketts, or Heat VP of Player Personnel Dave Wohl had any comment on the matter. Fred Kerber of the N.Y. POST reports if Stern determines it was Riley who initiated the contact between the two sides, "he conceivably could issue sanctions [against Riley], perhaps a suspension" (N.Y. POST, 8/29).
