HEAT WAVES -- HUDSON RESUBMITS BID, NBA MAY MEDIATE LAWSUIT

     Whit Hudson has re-submitted his ownership bid to the NBA
for the Heat and could discuss the deal Wednesday with league
officials.  Hudson plans to purchase the 40% of the team owned by
Billy Cunningham and Lewis Schaffel, and has revised his initial
offer with "half of the $60 million purchase completed for in
cash."  The NBA also "may offer to mediate in a lawsuit" filed
last week against Cunningham and Schaffel by Heat limited partner
Raanan Katz, who claims his share in the team should be doubled.
Katz is seeking over $2M in damages (Alex Marvez, MIAMI HERALD,
11/15).
