Pison to move-
back to Detroit?
DETROIT (UPI)-The Detroit Pistons have called an afternoon news conferen-
ce for Monday at the Joe Louis Arena, indicating they intend to move back to the
city of Detroit after 3 yearsgat the Pontiac Silverdome.
Attendance for the first year at the Silverdome averaged 9,510 per game, but fell
off substantially last year, and may be the same again this season.
THE PISTONS were plagued during their first year at Pontiac by inadequate
heat and one game had to be cancelled because moisture condensation on the roof
continually dripped on the floor, making footing for the players precarious.
The heating system has since been upgraded at a cost of several thousand
dollars per game. The Pistons originally signed a 5-year lease with Silverdome of-
ficials, but it contained numerous escape clauses. Whether the NBA club has been
able to find one of those loopholes to wriggle through or will live out its 5-year plan
at the Dome will be among the questions answered Monday.
The Pistons moved to Detroit from Ft. Wayne in 1957-58 and finished second that
first season, but have never won a title of any kind and rarely have advanced
beyond the first round of the playoffs in the few times they've even made the
