SAN JOSE GIVES WARRIORS DEADLINE FOR TALKS...SORT OF

     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).
