NBA sides return, 82-game season still possible
NEW YORK (AP) - NBA owners and players are meeting again, hoping to build on the progress from a marathon session Wednesday and strengthen the chances of an 82-game season.
Small groups from both sides resumed talks less than 12 hours after finishing a 15-hour meeting that went until past 3 a.m. Both sides said there was progress on issues related to the salary cap system, though didn't offer any specifics.
They are expected to continue discussing the system Thursday. Union executive director Billy Hunter says they might be in a better position to quantify the progress on specific issues following Thursday's talks.
Though the first two weeks of the season have been canceled because of the lockout, Hunter said he believed 82 games were still possible with a deal by Sunday or Monday.
