ROCKETS OWNER LOOKS TO DELAY SUMMIT NAMING RIGHTS DEAL
Published October 14, 1997
Rockets Owner Les Alexander asked Houston City Council members yesterday "to postpone" a vote to rename The Summit, according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. Alexander's lobbyist, Bill Miller, said that Alexander "is concerned" how the deal could affect the team's 24 corporate sponsors that have arena ad rights during NBA games. Miller said that the Rockets "know virtually nothing about the deal" between Arena Management Corp. and Compaq Computer Corp. "aside from media reports." Councilmember Rob Todd said that "unless more information is provided," the issues could be postponed for a week (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/14).
