Bill Cosby "will be introduced this week" as a member of the new ownership group of the Nets, according to Phil Jasner of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. Cosby met for several hours yesterday in N.Y. with Lewis Katz, a member of the team's ownership group. Cosby is expected to be chair and spokesperson of a segment of ownership that will provide scholarships to inner-city students through a non-profit trust fund. Katz and Cosby attended Temple Univ. together in the early '60s (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 1/13).
