G Alvin Robertson's new eight-year contract is worth about $15.5 million, the most lucrative deal in Bucks history, according to the Milwaukee Journal.

The three years remaining from his original contract with San Antonio -- including this season -- reportedly will not be changed. Beginning in 1993-94, he will make $2.3 million annually for three years, the newspaper said. The first six years of the contract are guaranteed. Beginning in 1996-97, Robertson has two non-guaranteed years, also at $2.3 million per year. And he got a $960,000 signing bonus.


Bill Cartwright, Chicago's oldest player, has found a new youthfulness.

"I feel better than I've felt in a long time," said Cartwright, 33, who came off knee surgery to start every game this season and is averaging 13.8 points and 9.6 rebounds during the Bulls' current five-game winning streak.

"I've been able to maintain good conditioning all season and stay away from any new injuries," the 7-foot-1 player said. "I don't know what my weight is. But that's not important. What matters is that I do feel strong and I'm playing well."
