SBD/2/Franchises

FRANCHISE NOTES

          The Warriors suspended Latrell Sprewell for a minimum
     of 10 games after he "twice attacked" coach P.J. Carlesimo
     in practice, according to David Steele of the S.F.
     CHRONICLE.  He will lose 10 games pay, more than $935,000. 
     The NBPA "likely will appeal" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 12/2). In
     S.F., C.W. Nevius writes that, "officially and with
     confidence, that the Warriors have hit rock bottom" (S.F.
     CHRONICLE, 12/2)....ABL CEO Gary Cavalli said that the
     league "isn't planning to move the Columbus franchise," but
     "wouldn't rule it out."  Cavalli: "I'm encouraged and I'm
     optimistic about how things are going in Columbus.  But at
     the same time, I've got a board of directors I have to
     answer to."  Through seven home games, the Quest is
     averaging 2,834 fans -- 607 more fans than it did at this
     point last season (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 11/30).
