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).
