Citing the league's extreme and inflexible position, union head Billy Hunter said Monday that a lockout is very likely.
"I’d be 99 percent sure as of today that there will be a lockout," said Hunter. "I’ve said, 'Save your money, because in all probability there’s going to be a lockout.'"
Hunter said the gap between the league and players is wide and stated that the union will not move from its current position.
The next bargaining session has not been scheduled but the two sides have discussed meeting in December.
What does this mean exactly? No NBA season or a shortened regular season?
