The NBA and players union met for over four hours today in New York City, for what many people called a ‘crucial’ session. The sides have not signed a new CBA, but they have decided to meet again tomorrow at 10 A.M. EST.
Union President Derek Fisher did not have much to say as to what transpired during the talks, but commentated on future sessions. @KBergCBS
“Fisher: “We did not come out of here with a deal today, but we will be back here at 10 a.m.”
21 NBA players attending the meeting along with 12 owners, the pool of athletes included league stars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade. Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem had this to say following his first labor meeting, “Everybody’s minds and hearts are in the right place, so that’s a start.”
The lockout may still be preventing players from partaking in NBA basketball, but the latest news is quite encouraging since more meetings leads to progress in the CBA signing.
