Kennedy had r u 1 e d several
months ago that the Bucks owned
draftrights to Erving. That ruling
was reaffirmed recently by the
NBA's Board of Governors, who
orderedtthe Bucks and Hawks to
work out a settlement.
The board further stipulated the
settlement had to be satisfactory
"We have always acted in ac-

"Atlanta apparently has violated
bylaws and the constitution and
the Board of Governors has direct-
ed them to make agreement with

"Julius can report to Atlanta's
camp but the commissioner must
approve his contract before he can
play in a game. The commissioner
has not approved the contract to
our knowledge," Embry said.
A spokesman for Kennedy con-
firmed that the commissioner had
not yet approved the contract.
