HEAT DECIDE TWO MAY BE BETTER THAN ONE
In a letter to Metro-Dade County officials, Heat Exec VP
Pauline Winick said that it "makes the most sense" to have the
team share a new building with the Panthers, if it is built
downtown, according to today's Ft. Lauderdale SUN SENTINEL.
Winick said the Heat is "willing to consider" an unspecified
financial investment in a new arena "if it is built in Miami."
Eric Conrad reports the team's hopes "appear to rest" with Metro-
Dade Commission Chair Arthur Teele, a proponent of a new arena.
Teele has asked former County Manager Joaquin Avino and
businessman Neal Harrington to help with the plan (Ft. Lauderdale
SUN SENTINEL, 8/23).
