SPURS BUCK TREND AND CHARTER SERVICE; LOOK FOR NEW SERVICE

     The Spurs have cut ties with Tucson-based charter company
Viscount Inc., which had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection, according to the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS.  Gregg
Popovich, Spurs VP/Basketball Ops, said he hoped to have another
permanent charter by April 1.  There has been speculation the
team's monetary problems caused the end of the deal, Popovich
denied that, adding, "We've had no problems making our payments
on time ... We've had problems with the charter company's service
(Glenn Rogers, SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS, 3/21).  Sources say
Viscount wanted the Spurs to pay $300,000 more for the remainder
of the year, on top of the $500,000 they had already paid (Kevin
O'Keefe, SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS, 3/21).
