Players Tightening Up Spending Habits as NBA Lockout Looms

With Billy Hunter saying he believes a lockout is a "99 per cent" lock, players are rolling back their expenditures. Brandon Jennings drives a Ford Edge, list price: $26,000.  Roger Mason Jr., a member of the players negotiating committee, has traded in his Bentley convertible for a used Cadillac Escalade, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Count Jordan Farmar among those the Journal quotes as tightening up, although he's been doing it for a while now.  Farmar told WSJ that "every penny" he spends is part of a long-term budget he prepares for himself to make sure he doesn't end up like "the players who make millions of dollars and still somehow end up living paycheck to paycheck."

But Darren Rovell of CNBC says hold on, what we're seeing from both sides is a negotiating ploy.
