Good News On NBA Labor Front

With a December 15th deadline looming for either side to opt out of the CBA, labor peace was given a bit of a reprieve today, as the NBA and the players union decided to extend the deadline.

NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski says talks have been ongoing, leading the two sides to agree to keep working. 

Woj notes that the extension is likely to continue until at least February, allowing negotiations to continue on a new labor deal. The current 7-year collective bargaining agreement is set to expire at the end of next season.

If either side opts out before then, a work stoppage could be in the offing as of July 1, 2023. The last NBA work stoppage occurred in 2011.
