RAPTORS AREN'T CROSS OVER STADIUM DIRECTOR'S DEPARTURE
Published May 29, 1996
Jay Cross, who has currently been the stadium project director for the Raptors' Air Canada Centre, has been hired by the Heat to work on their proposed $165M arena, writes Robert MacLeod of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Raptors President John Bitove Jr. insisted Cross's departure has nothing to do with the fact that construction of the Air Canada Centre continues to be delayed by legal details, and that he encouraged Cross to take the Heat job. Bitove: "They are where we were two years ago. They need someone to put it together to make it happen." The Raptors also announced that they will hold part of their training camp next season at the 4,200-seat Molson Centre in Barrie, 45- minutes north of Toronto (Toronto GLOBE AND MAIL, 5/28).
