The NBA lockout heads into a new phase tomorrow when the key negotiators for the players and owners are expected to meet for the first time in a few weeks. This comes after the league announced their preseason schedule which then set up a deadline of September 15th to end the lockout to avoid missing those games.
Staying informed about the lockout has its moments of interest but it sure is boring. Even some of great work I've read lately (and linked to today) does nothing to keep my hoops pulse from flat-lining. But again, there has been some great reads leading up to tomorrow's meetings so check 'em out after the jump, along with Mike Wells making the case to for the Pacers to bring back free agent Jeff Foster.
