FRANCHISE NOTES

          Pacers President Donnie Walsh, on landing a WNBA team:
     "I am confident we'll be a viable candidate [for expansion]
     when the new arena is complete" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS,
     9/23)....The Nets will hold their '97 training camp in
     Atlantic City (Bergen RECORD, 9/18)....In Toronto, Gary
     Picknell wrote the Bills, who estimate that as much as 10%
     of their fans are from southern Ontario, are "concerned
     about the possibility of a new U.S. law" which would require
     Canadians to fill out visas and exit and entry forms before
     crossing the border.  The law could go into effect next
     September (TORONTO SUN, 9/21).
