Report: Union, NBA To Meet Next Week

5

"That meeting will take place next week, barring some unforeseen scheduling issue, according to two sources familiar with the matter. It could take place as early as Monday, depending on how the schedules of a few key figures shake out, according to one of the sources. Staff members from each side, including some top officials, have met twice since the lockout took effect but those sessions have not involved commissioner David Stern, union executive director Billy Hunter and top outside counsel for both sides... Under the just-expired collective bargaining agreement, players were guaranteed 57 percent of all basketball-related income, and the league recently had to fork over $162 million in escrow funds and an additional $26 million to make sure player salaries for the 2010-11 hit that mark."
