HEAT ARENA PLANS TO COME FIRST, WNBA NEXT
Published September 15, 1997
Miami "won't be among" the WNBA's two expansion teams next summer, according to Barry Jackson of the MIAMI HERALD. Heat President of Business Ops Jay Cross says the Heat "decided to concentrate on the construction" of its new arena "before pursuing a WNBA team." Cross: "It's best that we wait until we have the new arena." Jackson added that the Heat "is having enough trouble just negotiating its own lease for the 1998-99 season. Cross said discussions are 'moving slowly' but he isn't discouraged -- yet." The team is hopeful that construction of the bayfront arena will start in January and be completed by the start of the '99- 2000 season. In other Heat news, Cross added that the team has "topped last season's season-ticket sales" of 8,700, and he said that it "won't replace" Exec VP Pauline Winick, who will retire on October 1 (MIAMI HERALD, 9/14).
