The proposed ABA 2000 professional basketball league added two teams Monday, and the addition of an Anaheim team remains a possibility. Joe Newman, co-founder of the league, said the Anaheim Roadrunners did not meet a Monday deadline the league had set to confirm a playing site at the Arrowhead Pond. But the deadline has been extended until today, he said. "If our requirements are met, Anaheim will be admitted to the league," Newman said.

Four Arizona businessmen pocketed a healthy profit last week by selling the franchise rights for a proposed Anaheim minor league basketball team--in a league that has yet to play a game. "We think Anaheim is a premier market," said Gary Elbogen, one of the businessmen. "We weren't going to walk away for nothing. This is a for-profit venture for all of us." Elbogen and his associates still own three other franchises in ABA 2000, a revival of the American Basketball Assn.

The Bullfrogs' bid for a perfect Major League Roller Hockey regular season came to an end Thursday night at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim, thanks to an old nemesis. Gerry St. Cyr, who throttled the Bullfrogs several times as a member of the Sacramento River Rats of the former Roller Hockey International, slipped a back-handed goal past goaltender Rob Laurie during the fourth round of a shootout and that proved to be enough for the Orlando Surge to post a 9-8 victory.

A proposal to place a minor league hockey team in the Anaheim Convention Center as early as the 1998-99 season looks promising, according to a Canadian sports agent brokering the sale of the Tucson Gila Monsters of the West Coast Hockey League to Stuart Silver, president and CEO of the Bullfrogs. "Mr. Silver is committed to bringing a professional minor league ice hockey team to Anaheim, and to that extent I am trying to work out a deal," Al Howell said Wednesday.

The Houston Rockets? Not interested in the Arrowhead Pond, at least right now. The Charlotte Hornets? Not looking elsewhere for their new arena, at least right now. The Clippers? Who knows? Officials at the money-losing Pond covet an NBA team, but pickings are slim in a league with no plans for expansion and most franchises playing in new arenas. As the Rockets shop for a new home, in Houston and elsewhere, the Anaheim effort to lure the team ran into a huge financial obstacle.
