With Both Sides "Dug In", Training Camp, Preseason To Be Delayed

New Jersey Nets

According to various sources, the NBA will formally cancel the first two weeks of training camp and exhibition games  following a call with league owners on Friday. The decision comes less than a day after a six-hour negotiating session in New York that saw no progress.

Adrian Wojnarowski writes the league is expected to cancel exhibition games through Oct. 15 on Friday and then re-evaluate the final two weeks of the preseason on Oct. 1. The scheduled Nov. 1 start to the regular season also is in danger of being postponed. The two sides are expected to meet again next week.

The league offered players a 46 percent of basketball-related revenue, 11 percent less than they received in last deal and seven percent less than last proposal by players, a league source told Ric Bucher and both Woj and Bucher said there was no progress on a hard cap.

Not everyone was pessimistic. Both Chris Sheridan and Ken Berger, who have been generally more positive than their colleagues, think there's movement even if glacial. "It's moving," a source told Berger. "Not as fast as some people would want, but it's moving."
