Report: Players Vote to Approve New CBA
NBA players on Thursday approved a new collective bargaining agreement in electronic voting, paving the way for owners to formally ratify the deal and open training camps and the free-agency period, two people familiar with the results told CBSSports.com.
The players voted via email from 6 p.m. ET Wednesday until 4 p.m. Thursday. The owners’ Board of Governors, with representatives from all 30 teams, was meeting in Manhattan Thursday to finalize details of their new revenue-sharing plan and also vote on the new deal.
