Union Dissension, Court Arguments Highlight CBA Scene...But No Talks

The players union meets Thursday to talk about strategy but those talks are the only ones scheduled as both sides are showing strains. David Stern fined Heat owner Micky Arison a half million dollars this week for suggesting a lack of unity among owners and now the two high profile union leaders seem at odds.

Howard Beck reports Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter have had an increasingly fractured relationship but both have denied that Fisher tried to cut a side deal with the NBA based on the 50-50 BRI split. And at least three players, Glen Davis, Samardo Samuels and Terrence Williams tweeted that they'd be willing to accept the even split and play.

Meanwhile, the two sides argued their case before a federal judge who declined to rule. Beck thinks it's possible negotiations could resume as early as Friday.
