ROCKETS OWNER LOOKS TO DELAY SUMMIT NAMING RIGHTS DEAL

          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).
