Players, NBA Meeting at 1pm
A meeting Wednesday between the NBA’s owners and its locked-out players tentatively is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET in New York, sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard. Logistics for the meeting currently are being worked out.
The NBA Players Association rejected the league’s latest labor proposal Tuesday but had asked for one more bargaining session before a 5 p.m. ET deadline Wednesday that, according to commissioner David Stern, will cause the offer to vanish if there’s no agreement.
Wednesday is the 132nd day of the second lockout in NBA history to bleed into the regular season.
