SALE OF MAVERICKS' STAKE RAISES QUESTIONS ABOUT ARENA SITE
Published February 14, 1997
Mavericks' Owner Don Carter's sale of most of his remaining stake in the team to Fort Worth billionaire and MLB Rangers part Owner Richard Rainwater "could become a factor" in the team's negotiations to build a new arena, according to Todd Gillman in the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Mavericks' Majority Owner Ross Perot, Jr. said the sale, announced yesterday as part of a $300M real-estate deal, creates "many options" outside Dallas. Perot, who "repeated his commitment" to trying to cut a deal in Dallas: "He acquired a lot of Don's land. Which means that he has the Lewisville site, which is a great arena site. He's involved in the Arlington site with the Rangers, which is also a great arena site. So it brings many options to the table -- if we decide to go that route" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 2/14).
