Dionne seeks his worth


From Wire Service Reports
D E TR O I T - Marcel
Dionne has revealed he wants
to find out what other National
Hockey League clubs think
about his stunning 1974-75 sea-
son with the Detroit Red Wings.
The Red Wings announced
yesterday they have had pre-
liminary contract talks with
Dionne, who becomes a free ag-
ent June 1, and also confirmed
rumors that he has sought talks
with other clubs.
Dionne and his lawyers told
Red Wings management last
week that they would like to
find out what other NHL clubs
consider Dionne's value to be
before they enter final negotia-
tions with Detroit.
In a statement, Red Wing
coach Alex Delvecchio said,
"We are anxious to complete
the negotiations and see no rea-
son why Marcelshould wait un-
til June 1 to make these in-
quiries. We have given him
permission to feel out other
clibs at this time."
Delvecchio said there has
been no suggestion that Dionne
would sign with another club.
"It is our belief and hope that
we will be able to come to an
agreement on a contract that
will be satisfactory to Marcel,"
Delvecchio said.
Dionne set a new Red Wings
scoring record in the season
just passed, breaking Gordie
Howe's old mark, and also set
a league record for shorthanded
Courtin Namath
NEW YORK - P h i I
Iselin, president of the New
York Jets, thinks he has made
Joe Namath an offer the quar-

terback can't refuse.
The offer is a reported $1
million over three years for
the 31-year-old star w h o
played out his option with the
Jets last season. Iselin thinks
Namath will take it. The Jets
boss just doesn't know when.
"I'd guess he would be with
the Jets next season," Iselin
said. "We want him with us.
He likes this city, and he made
his records here. He belongs in
this city, with our team."
... the Rozelle rule
M I N N E A P O L I S - A
player's agent testified that
Detroit Lions Coach Rick For-
zano passed up an opportunity
to sign linebacker and former
University of Michigan star
Mike Tayolr because he "didn't
want to get involved" with the
Rozelle Rule.
Frederick Steinhardt, a De-
troit lawyer, was testifying
during the trial of a lawsuit
filed by 15 former NFL play-
ers against the league, Com-
missioner Pete Rozelle and
the 26 club owners.
Steinhardt said Forzano asked
him, "Didn't he (Taylor) play
out his option to go with the
wheels? I said, Yes. He said,
Forget it. I'm not interested.
We'd have to get involved with
the Rozelle Rule. As far as I'm
concerned, we never had the
Kentucky bound?
Bill Willoughby, believed by
many to be the top high school
forward in the country, has ap-
plied for the NBA's hardship
draft, it was learned.

The 6-foot-8 Willoughby had
signed a letter of intent to at-
tend the University of Ken-
He averaged 32 points and 16
rebounds per game for Engle-
wood High School, which was
27-2 last season and won a divi-
sion of the state champion-
Willoughby confirmed that he
had applied for the draft but
declined further comment.
Anderson traded
MIAMI - Running
back Donny Anderson, acquired
by the Miami Dolphins, won't
be expected to fill two pairs of
shoes, Coach Don Shula says,
but the nine-year NFL veteran
may get a chance to try.
Anderson was traded to the
Dolphins by the St. Louis
Cardinals for Miami wide re-
ceiver Marlin Briscoe and
running back Hubert Ginn.
"We plan to use Donny in the
Jim Kiick situations," said
Shula, faced with rebuilding his
once - powerful backfield be-
cause one of the most cele-
brated jumps in pro football
Kiick, a running back; full-
back Larry Csonka and wide
received Paul Warfield left the
Dolphins at the end of last sea-
son to fulfill a $3 million-plus
contract with the World Foot-
ball League's Memphis South-
Lee dumped
ATLANTA -Quarter-
back Bob Lee of the Atlanta
Falcons officially became a
free agent when head coach Ma-
rion Campbell announced that

he no longer fits in the Falcons
Lee had been placed on waiv-
ers and no team claimed him.
Atlanta chose Quarterback
Steve Bartkowski of California
as their first pick in this year's
National Football League draft.
"Bob has known for some
time that he was not in our
plans," Campbell said.

NEW YORK-Cleon Jones met
for 45 minutes with General
Manager Joe McDonald of the
New York Mets last evening
and the club said it would have

no immediate comment on the
outfielder's recent arrest in St.
Petersburg, Fla.
Jones, in Florida for rehabil-
itation of his injured knee, was
arrested for indecent exposure
near the Mets' St. Petersburg
training complex early Sunday
after he was found sleeping in
the nude in a parked van with
a 21-year-old woman.
In a brief press box news
conference just before the
Mets' game against the Pitts-
burgh Pirates, McDonald said
he understood the Florida
state attorney's office would
decide in a day or two wheth-
er to prosecute.
