SAN JOSE GIVES WARRIORS DEADLINE FOR TALKS...SORT OF
Published November 2, 1995
Negotiators for the city of San Jose, "concerned about the slow pace of talks with the Warriors," have told the team the city council needs to vote on a $43M relocation deal by November 14 if the San Jose Arena is to be ready by '96-97. Although the date is an "effort to step up pressure for a decision," San Jose officials "stopped short" of saying any deal would be off if the Warriors didn't accept the new time frame -- "raising questions about how effective the city's tactic will be." Gary Robinson, Chief of Staff for San Jose Mayor Susan Hammer, said the deadline was set so everyone knows "these discussions cannot go on forever." San Jose has been in discussion with the Warriors over a possible move for months, but the deal has been slowed because the Sharks and Warriors have failed to reach agreement on a proposed lease (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 11/2).
