N.B.A. Talks to Resume Saturday

Post  Magdalene on Thu Nov 03, 2011 7:35 pm

A group of 50 N.B.A. players intend to cheap nfl jerseyspush for the dissolution of their union if a new round of labor negotiations fails this weekend, or if the talks produce an unpalatable deal, according to a person who has spoken to the players.

The movement was said to be entirely player-driven, and borne of a frustration with the pace of talks between the league and union leaders. The players have beewholesale nfl jerseysn locked out since July 1, and a month of games have been canceled.

Two conference calls were held this week between the players and an antitrust lawyer — once on Tuesday and again on Thursday. It is not clear whether union leaders have been directly informed of the effort.

“And the players are seriously considering decertification if a deal is not reached where the players’ proposals are in the final elements of the deal,” said the person connected to the players.

That means the players involved will oppose any deal that includes less than a 52.5 percent share of league revenues for players, or any number of Cheap NFL Jerseysproposed restrictions on free-agent movement. N.B.A. owners are proposing a 50-50 split of revenues and have held firm to that position. The league is also pushing to eliminate certain salary-cap exceptions for teams that exceed the luxury tax threshold.

N.B.A. and union negotiators are scheduled to meet Saturday afternoon in Manhattan. The group of disenchanted players is looking for progress toward a deal. If there is no progress, or if the progress requires further union concessions, the decertification effort will proceed.
