Stern on Deadline: ‘The Clock is Stopped’
NBA commissioner David Stern had vowed to “reset” the owners’ proposal to a worse offer if a deal wasn’t reached by 5 p.m. ET Wednesday, but the deadline passed early in the negotiating session without action.
“The clock is stopped,” Stern said after the talks ended at 1 a.m. ET Thursday. “And we’re trying to see if there’s a reason why we can get something to go back to our respective sides with.”
