Banned from practice and team facilities Tuesday, Latrell Sprewell was in jeopardy of having his four-year, $32 million NBA contract terminated following an attack on coach P.J. Carlesimo. The three-time Ail-Star and leading scorer for the Golden State Warriors was suspended without pay for 10 games after two confrontations with Carlesimo at practice Monday. During the first, Sprewell put his hands around the coach's throat and reportedly threatened to "kill" him; during the second, 20 minutes later, he landed a glancing punch to Carlesimo's neck. In a letter to Sprewell informing him of the suspension, the team said it reserved the right to terminate his contract under Section 16 of the Uniform Player Contract, which says players must "conform to standards of good citizenship and good moral character" and prohibits "engaging in acts of moral turpitude." Sprewell was in Oakland on Tuesday and was unavailable for comment. His agent, Arn Tellem, did not return phone calls. The New York Post, citing sources at practice, said Sprewell put a stranglehold on Carlesimo and quoted the player as saying: "I'm going to kill you. You better get me off this team, or that's what I'm going to do." Several players and assistant coaches separated the two, the paper said.

"You go through a couple of losing seasons ... and situations evolve like it did with P.J. and Spree. Losing is a part of this game. It's just how you deal with it. I think it was dealt with the wrong way." i Riley said "there's no way" the Heat wjjl try to acquire Sprewell, who has been the subject of trade rumors since last year, but It has nothing to do with Monday's attack. J "He makes $7.5 million so you have tp trade like-salaries and anytime you give trp those type of salaries you have to give up key, core players," Riley said. "It's commoh knowledge around the league that he's avai -able. It's a question of whether you can make the numbers work." B Heat have Iverson's number: Thfc Heat owned Allen Iverson in three games last season. Iverson, the 1996 NBA Rookie of the Year, shot 7-of-43 (16 percent) from the field against the Heat and was held tb 10.3 points per game. J Further, the 76ers' point guard was limited to 16 assists and committed ).;! turnovers. u B Noteworthy: Mourning said he uiif derwent X-rays on his surgically repaired left knee on Monday and was told that he'i "a week or two ahead of schedule." . . . Riley said he doesn't like the Heat's current run f four games in 12 days. "I really dislike this much time off," Riley said. "If you're playing every other day, even back to back, guys ar more in tune and more ready. A lot of day! off gets you soft." Sprewell matter. AVO.
