SPURS BUCK TREND AND CHARTER SERVICE; LOOK FOR NEW SERVICE
Published March 21, 1996
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).
