NBA, players meet briefly; talks to resume Wednesday | NBA.com

NEW YORK (AP) — Negotiators for the NBA and its players met for about two hours and will talk again Wednesday in an effort to end the lockout that has lasted nearly three months.

Both sides said neither concern nor optimism should be read into the brevity of the meeting. They simply needed time to think about what had been discussed.

Commissioner David Stern hinted that Wednesday’s session will determine when more discussions are warranted. It’s been expected there would be no talks Thursday because members of both bargaining teams will be observing the Jewish holiday, but they could resume talks before the weekend.

“They and we have both agreed that so long as there is reason to keep discussing, we will keep discussing, undeterred by the calendar or weekends or things like that,” Stern said. “We will know more after tomorrow’s session.”
