owner Franklin Mieuli, both Han-
num and Sharman were Warrior
coaches. Hannum might have re-
turned after two years in Phila-
delphia and Sharman might have
stayed if Warrior stock had been
available. -
Informed of Hannum's Oakland
contract, Mieuli said that open the
Warrior head coaching job to as-
sistant George Lee if he wants it.
Hannum told a news conference
he signed an eight-year contract
with the Oaks and "will become
totally involved in basketball,"
giving up in effect his Southern
California construction business.
He saidrhe will receive the same
salary from the Oaks as he re-
ceived at Philadelphia.
His 76ers won the Eastern Divi-
sion season title, but lost the firstJ
round playoff to the Boston Cel-
tics, who %vent on to the NBA
championship.,
Hannum left the Warriors two
years ago because Mieuli demand-
ed that he devote full time to the
team, including holding offseason
drills.
Bruce Hale, who coached the
Oaks the past season, will devote
full time to being general manager.
Hannum declined to say how
much stock he gets in the Oaks
except "It's the same as Rick
Barry's." That would be 10 per
cent. Barry will play for the Oaks
after Sept. 30.
Would his and Sharman's
switching to the ABA attract play-
ers from the NBA?
"I think there would be trouble
if we tried wholesale recruiting of
NBA players,"Hannum replied. "If
someone feels he wants to improve
his lot by coming to the ABA we',l
be glad to talk with him."
