Source: ‘No way this deal gets taken’
The ominous response from one source on the players’ side, who expects the union to reject the proposal next week after learning of the tweaks offered by the league on the five or so “system” issues that have kept the parties at an impasse: “Nothing was addressed. It’s basically the same offer as it was before.
“No way this deal gets taken (by the players). They didn’t move on any system issues that concerned us. It’s still basically (like) a hard cap with very restrictive rules for player movement.”
