There apparently won’t be a potential work stoppage in the NBA for a quite a while.
The NBA and National Basketball Players’ Association are very close to agreeing to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, as both sides announced a “tentative agreement” in a press release Wednesday night.
While specific details weren’t announced, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski provided some more details on Twitter.
An agreement was far from a sure thing after the two sides failed to reach a deal before the 2011-12 season, resulting in a lockout that pushed the start of the campaign until Christmas Day. But it appears that won’t happen this time around.
