How Soon a Season?

We're going with the optimism this morning, hoping the CBA bargaining sessions this weekend will lead to an agreement in principle, setting up a series of dominos that ends with real games beginning a month from now.

Here's a good guide on what things may look like over the next several weeks, assuming a deal gets done this weekend, which of course would be nice but nothing is yet certain.

Oct. 30                                 Agreement in Principle
Nov. 2                                  Agreement is ratified by both players & owners
Nov. 3- 17                            New CBA is written up and approved
Nov. 18                                Free Agency Begins
Nov. 20                                Training Camp Begins
Nov. 29                                First game of the regular season
