Knicks are considering trading Ewing

August 23, 1991

For the first time since last June, when Patrick Ewing challenged the New York Knicks in arbitration in a salary dispute, the Knicks said publicly yesterday that they are considering trading their All-Star center.

"We're going to do what's best for the Knicks," said Dave Checketts, the club president. "We're going to explore all opportunities to improve our team, including the possibility of trading Patrick Ewing."

According to Checketts, Ewing never has asked to be traded, but Checketts' statement may have come as a result of a meeting between Ewing and coach Pat Riley 11 days ago. Ewing presented Riley with a list of the teams he preferred if he is traded. The list comprised the Washington Bullets, Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers.

Track and field

Florence Griffith Joyner and her husband, Al, have begun training for the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain.

Griffith Joyner, a triple gold medalist in Seoul, South Korea, in 1988, still holds the world records for the 100 and 200 meters. Now, she's considering training at 400 meters for the 1992 Games in Barcelona, then making the jump to the marathon for the 1996 Games in Atlanta.

Her husband, a 1984 triple jump gold medalist and Griffith Joyner's coach in 1988, is aiming for Barcelona in the 110-meter hurdles.
