CELTICS WOULD GET CAP RELIEF UNDER PROPOSED CBA

     The Celtics are hoping the proposed CBA is ratified because
under the terms of the new agreement, the team would be able to
deduct Reggie Lewis' salary from the salary cap, according to the
BOSTON GLOBE.  Under the old agreement, there are no provisions
that cover a player's death.  NBA officials note that under the
new agreement, if a player dies or suffers a career-ending
injury, his team will continue to pay him or his estate for the
length of his contract, but after two years, the salary will not
count against the cap (Jackie MacMullan, BOSTON GLOBE, 9/6).
