NEW YORK (AP) - NBA players' association executive director Billy Hunter says an antitrust complaint against the league will be filed Tuesday night.

Hunter says the suit will be filed in the Northern District of California.

David Boies, an attorney for the players, says they've brought this case to restore competitive free-market conditions.

He says the players will not seek a preliminary injunction to lift the lockout. Boies says that because the lockout "arguably grew out of prior collective bargaining discussions" that it would be very difficult to get a preliminary injunction and could delay the case.

Boies says it is in "everybody's interests to resolve this quickly," adding the longer it goes on, the greater the damages for teams and players.
