Amick: NBA Owners and Players To Meet Again Next Week

Sam Amick reports that the NBA owners and players will resume CBA talks next week. We'll see if they can move past working out the parameters of the negotiations to working on the parameters of the actual CBA.

The monumental gap between the two sides remains, with the issues ranging from the split on basketball-related income to the preferred type and structure of the salary cap and much more. One of the sources said the owners did not put forth a new proposal, as the NBPA had hoped, but that much of the time was spent "laying the groundwork" for future discussions.

Hopefully, this is also part of a trend for both sides to show a little sense of urgency and ramp up talks. They went a month between meetings last time and now we're down to a week. Next stop -- ongoing, daily meetings.
