16 Hours of Negotiations Produces No Deal, No Comment

0 comments

NEW YORK -- The marathon NBA labor negotiations ended shortly after  2 a.m. on Wednesday, approximately 16 hours after they began.

Federal mediator George Cohen presided over the meeting between full bargaining committees of the National Basketball Players Association and owners a day after he met with both sides individually at their New York offices.

After the negotiating session Cohen requested that neither side make any public comment. The two sides will return to the same New York hotel to resume talks at 10 a.m.

The two-day NBA owners meetings begins today, but instead of a labor relations committee meeting among the owners, it will be replaced by yet another negotiating session between the union and the league with Cohen presiding.
