NBA lockout: Negotiations stall again

October 28, 2011 |  2:02 pm

Negotiations between the NBA and its players union stopped Friday, with multiple reports pointing to disagreement over how to split basketball-related income  as the cause.

Representatives from both sides are due to explain their positions to reporters soon in New York, and the NBA could very well cancel more games after previously canceling 100 regular-season games from Nov. 1-14.

Owners want the players to take a 7% cut of BRI after contending that 22 of 30 teams lost money last season, with the league losing $300 million.

The players haven't moved lower than 52%, according to basketball officials. It is not immediately clear when the sides will gather again.

We'll have more later on
