NBA players meeting to discuss league’s offer
NEW YORK (AP) - NBA players are meeting to discuss whether to accept the league’s current proposal to end the lockout.
Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks, Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers and Jason Terry of the Dallas Mavericks are among the players participating in Wednesday’s session with the union leadership.
That current deal calls for players to receive between 49 percent and 51 percent of basketball-related income, though players argue it would be nearly impossible to get above 50.2 percent.
Players have until Wednesday afternoon to take the deal. If not, the next offer is expected to call for rolling back players’ salaries, a 53-47 revenue split in the owners’ favor and essentially a hard salary cap.
No bargaining session has been scheduled before Wednesday’s deadline.
