NBA players, owners might meet Saturday

November 3, 2011 | 11:57 am

Nba-logo_200NBA players and owners could resume their labor negotiations Saturday.

The NBA has a Board of Governors meeting Saturday morning in New York and the players union is discussing Thursday whether they want to give the negotiations another shot at ending the lockout, now in its 126th day.

Negotiations have stalled each of the last two weeks, with owners and players stuck on the much-publicized split of basketball-related income. Owners have insisted on a 50-50 BRI split while players have agreed to come down to 52% after making 57% last season.

All games have been canceled until at least Dec. 1, with more cancellations likely if there’s no agreement by the end of next week.
