GUOKAS TESTIMONY COULD BE KEY IN CASE AGAINST MAGIC

     Former Magic Coach Matt Guokas is expected to take the stand
today in the trial of George Scholz, who claims the team fired
him solely to hire a black assistant coach.  Guokas' testimony
"could play a pivotal role in the trial," according to Gene
Yasuda of the ORLANDO SENTINEL.  Scholz has testified that Guokas
"could confirm Scholz's story that Magic officials plotted to
fire him" in '92.  During the first two weeks of the trial,
Scholz's lawyers "have produced evidence supporting Scholz's
claim that he was, indeed, an assistant coach," but have not
"corroborated the claim that he was fired unjustly.  That could
change with Guokas' testimony" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 1/30).
