Players Union meeting Tuesday in Miami

Derek Fisher and director Billy Hunter must think so, because Miami will be home to a players union meeting next Tuesday. The meeting will update the players on how there has been almost no movement in the negotiations.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Nothing came of the players and owners recent meeting. And nothing will come from the players meeting in Miami on Tuesday.

The union is gathering in South Beach to discuss how to negotiate when the owners won’t budge off their demands for a hard cap and want a 50-50 split of Basketball Related Income.

Here’s the problem: the players have yet to miss a pay cheque, so they won’t concede.

Things have to get a little tighter for the players to cave in, which means the season won’t start on time or before Christmas.

–O. Sandor.
