Call 845-2611 Rockets need guardL^ for winning season [Tq, HOUSTON (AP) —The Houston Rockets achieved some long-range goals in the off-season, giving a 6- year, $12 million contract to Ralph Sampson, who joins fellow Twin Tower Akeem Olajuwon, already signed through 1988. Owner Charlie Thomas signed a lease extension on Oct. 19 that will make The Summit home for the Ro?kets through 2003. Now it’s up to Coach Bill Fitch and General Manager Ray Patterson to solve the short-term problem of rebuilding the team’s guard corps. The Rockets open the season Fri day against San Antonio in The Summit. Houston has been deficient at the guard position since John Lucas, Louis Lloyd and Mitchell Wiggins left the club because of drug prob lems over the past two seasons. The cast of characters for Fitch’s guard revue has been extensive, ranging from 12-year veteran World B. Free to diminutive Andre Turner, to Lester Conner, a former Golden State No. 1 pick. Turner, at 5-9, 159, has been a surprise during training camp, mak ing up in speed what he lacks in size. He’d like to accomplish with the Rockets what Spud Webb has done at Atlanta. Turner wants to prove he won't be a defensive liability. ”1 know that’s something the coaches worry about,” Turner said. “That’s what teams try to do against Spud. The little guy has to compen sate by fighting and scratching. “We have to start on the other end of the floor and play aggressive de fense for 70 or 80 feet before our man gets to the post-up position.” Turner, who played at Memphis State, failed in attempts to play for the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics last season andspenifc in the Continental Bas ciation. The Rockets look at Tun#; speedster to fuel Houston's game. Fitch likes Free’s outside keep defenses from collapsn the Twin Towers. At age lA, signed with the Rockets asi agent. “My age hasn’t caught up# mind,” Free said. “My bah burned out. When you getk tain age, people will start tni draw conclusions aboutaplaye “But World B. will knos World B. can’t play.” Free averaged 23.4 pota Cleveland in 1985-86.

They were stunned in the first round of the playoffs by Seattle and lost Coach Dick Motta in the second- guessing fallout because of it. Motta, who had been embroiled in frequent spats with star Mark Aguirre, resigned and never went public with his reasons. Motta had been the Mavericks’ only head coach since Dallas obtained an expansion franchise. The big question mark for the team this year is whether new coach John MacLeod can put all the pieces back together again. MacLeod was fired after nearly 14 seasons with the Phoenix Suns. Only Red Auerbach, who coached the Boston Celtics for 16 seasons, had a longer continous service with one club in NBA history. MacLeod, 50, was 579-543 with Phoenix and directed the Suns to nine playoff berths. His 1975-76 team lost to Boston in the NBA fi nals. “Dick built a great winning tradi tion and I hope to carry on that tra dition and hopefully get the Maver icks up to the next level,” MacLeod said. Although he contends “it makes no sense to make dramatic changes,” he is hoping Dallas can run more like the Los Angeles Lakers. “This team averaged 1 17 points of gar l“When > an area wl |ng befor loup of jmble,” :w Jersey tlligence s JBut Ke for the Te: don, disagt mutuel bet J’The r< track is for per game, but 1 think we little more, though.'

P'he bill toners an having an 1 racetrack, from racin in Texas. LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Thomas Hearns will try to become the first boxer to win titles in four weight classes when he fights Juan Domingo Roldan tonight. At stake will be the World Boxing Council middleweight championship, which became vacant when Sugar Ray Leonard retired af ter upsetting Marvelous Marvin Hagler last April 6. On hand for Hearns’ bid to make history will be Leonard, who stopped Hearns in the 14th round of a battle for the undisputed wel terweight championship in 1981, and Hagler, who knocked out Hearns in the third round of an un disputed middleweight title defense in 1985.

Six of those 10 won their third titles in the 1980s when the number of weight classes doubled from the traditional eight and most cham pionships have been been split.
