Report: owners, players holding CBA talks

NBA players and owners are hoping to meet in a small group on Wednesday and/or Thursday of this week in New York City, according to sources.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They’ll talk Wednesday. We think.

There are reports NBA owners and players are meeting today to hold small group discussions on a new collective bargaining agreement.

The positive: both sides don’t want to delay the start of the regular season. The negative: both sides are sticking to the ideological line they drew in the sand years ago.

The owners want a hard cap. The players do not.

The owners want a 50-50 split of Basketball Related Income. The players do not.

Something has to give. Somebody has to compromise. Hopefully, this process begins at today’s meeting.
