Reports: NBA to postpone training camp
The NBA’s slate of preseason games will be postponed, according to numerous reports.
Sources say that the league will make the announcement Friday. The opening date of training camps will also be delayed.
The latest round of negotiations between owners and the players’ union ended Thursday without an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement. The next negotiating session has not yet been scheduled.
NBA commissioner David Stern acknowledge “the calendar is not our friend” when referring to the season being played in full.
Players would be expected to report to training camp Oct. 3 should the lockout be lifted, but that date will likely be changed because of the ongoing lockout.
The NBA regular season is scheduled to begin Nov. 1.
