Despite rumors that another two weeks of games would be cancelled Tuesday, it didn't happen and now, there's word that the two sides will resume talks Wednesday in New York. Chris Sheridan reports that the owners have dropped their precondition that the players agree to a 50-50 split of BRI, which is what ended three days of mediation last week.
Meanwhile, the Times reports that the revised schedule still on NBA team websites is "worthless". The league has begun permitting NBA arena managers to book other attractions. Whenever the lockout is resolved, the N.B.A. will build a new schedule from scratch, using all arena dates that are still reserved, the Times reports.
