According to sources, the league and players union will make their way back to the negotiating table this Saturday in New York. The sides have not met since last Friday after the BRI debate emerged. The parties had their own sessions throughout the week, with the most recent one coming today by the players.
CBS Sports: “After breaking off talks last Friday, the NBA and players’ union are expected to resume face to face negotiations this Saturday in New York, according to involved sources.
We’re still awaiting confirmation from the league office, but sources say the plan is pretty much set.
The sides have been working within their own groups for the most part in these last days, setting their positions and deciding whether they will move from their most recent offers — and, if so, by how much.”
It is quite certain that the sides will discuss the BRI split in this meeting, and talking about a CBA is better than not talking at all, no?
