Latrell Sprewell is going back to court, less than a month after a judge threw out his original lawsuit against the Golden State Warriors and the NBA.
A spokesman for Sprewell said that the former All-Star guard, who was suspended for most of last season after choking coach P.J. Carlesimo during a practice, will hold a news conference Monday to announce he is refiling the lawsuit.
The suit will attack the NBA's suspension and seek monetary damages, as well as claiming the NBA engaged in destruction of evidence and fraudulent activities, Sprewell spokesman Steve Hopcraft said.
Elsewhere, Sacramento Kings forward Chris Webber has been dropped from a multimillion dollar endorsement contract with Fila U.S.A. after a series of legal troubles. Two weeks ago, Webber was stopped during a Fila promotional trip in San Juan's international airport with a carry-on bag containing 11 grams of marijuana, U.S. Customs Service reported.
