NBA trying to salvage season

Posted:

The NBA is about to take another crack at settling its four-month labor dispute.

A person with knowledge of the plan says officials from the league and the players' association will meet Wednesday, less than a week after three days of talks with a federal mediator failed to end the lockout. The source says the meeting will consist of small groups from each side.

Talks broke down last Thursday after players said owners insisted they agree to a 50-50 split of revenues before they would further discuss the salary cap system. By not reaching an agreement last week, the NBA will likely be forced to cancel more games to go with the two weeks that were already scrapped.

A league official said Tuesday that it was the union and not Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban that proposed the elimination of the salary cap during negotiations last week. Union executive director Billy Hunter had mentioned on a podcast with ESPN.com Tuesday that Cuban had made the proposal. However, NBA senior vice president Mike Bass said Tuesday that Cuban broached the possibility of a cap exception, not the elimination of the cap.
