NBA Players on Lockout After Failed Negotiations

Friday, July 01, 2011

After hours of negotiating, NBA players and owners failed to come to an agreement over salary caps and team revenue. Those involved said the meetings were friendly, but players will remain on lockout until a settlement can be reached. While players have proposed a string of pay cuts to be enacted over the next few years, team owners say it is not enough to make the teams profitable. The Players Association and team owners will meet in two to three weeks to discuss this issue again.

Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, Takeaway Sports Contributor, speaks with us about the implications of the shutdown.
