The last several months, the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association have been quietly working hard on a new collective bargaining agreement to avoid a work stoppage, which took place before a deal was struck in 2011. Cheap Air Max 270 Australia .The negotiations have been building toward this week, when a crucial moment in the talks will arrive. Here is a quick explanation of what is taking place:Q: What is the Dec. 15 deadline?A: When the NBA and the players union ended the lockout in 2011, they agreed to a 10-year collective bargaining agreement through 2021. However, a provision allows either side to declare the intention -- by Dec. 15, 2016 -- to opt out of the last four years of the CBA. From the day they signed this contract, both sides knew theyd probably be talking about a new agreement now and not in 2021. That date arrives Thursday.The desire has been to have a new deal done so a replacement plan would be in place, to assure labor peace, at the moment the current one is terminated. If a new CBA isnt in place, either the league or the union -- or perhaps both -- will opt out, and the current CBA will end on June 30, 2017.Q: So if the sides dont agree by Thursday, will there be another lockout?A: Not necessarily. Thursday is a procedural deadline. The real deadline for getting a deal done is July 1 of next year. If the opt-out clause is invoked and there isnt a deal by then, thats when a lockout would begin. There is still lots of time. The true deadline is probably September, when actual training camp time would be lost.However, both sides are motivated to get a deal done, and doing so now, six-plus months early, would be a great sign and assure no disruption in the leagues momentum. If theres a roadblock now, it could end up fostering bad blood. These talks have been framed as a CBA extension, not a new CBA because many issues settled in the previous CBA are being left alone. If the sides have to start from scratch, theres a greater chance problems will arise.Q: Could this deadline be pushed back?A: Sure, the sides could mutually agree to extend it out a few days if they feel theyre in deal range. They have been talking intensively for months now and have settled a lot of matters. The biggest issue is always the split of the revenue pie -- that is what caused the loss of games in 2011 -- and the sides have agreed to leave the current split essentially in place.The players have been getting between 49-51 percent of basketball revenue the past six years, depending on a series of complex factors. As long as that agreement holds, its likely there will be no lost time.Q: So whats the holdup?A: The biggest sticking point is believed to be the licensing deal. This is about the money that comes in from brands that use NBA logos or likenesses of players: jersey sales, video games, the official beer of the NBA, etc. In the past, this agreement has been separate from the CBA, but it appears the sides want to make changes to the contract now.They have been talking for several weeks about this and dont yet have a resolution. But with so many larger matters, and since commissioner Adam Silver and union executive director Michele Roberts are focused on making sure their first CBA together doesnt involve a work stoppage, leaders on both sides believe they can get something done.Q: So why was Carmelo Anthony so pessimistic?A: Anthony is one of the union vice presidents, and he was clearly frustrated in his remarks to ESPN over the weekend. It is typical in complex negotiations for sides to get upset with each other when problems arent resolved quickly. Deadlines also create pressure. That is manifesting itself here.This is clearly a challenge because there was a belief that a deal would be in place by now. On balance, theres been a lot more agreement in major areas, such as revenue split, expansion of the D-League, changes to free agency, changes to extension rules and a joint effort to help retired players.Q: How will this affect this season?A: In several ways. Teams have been waiting to make moves until they see what the new rules are. The future salary cap might change, the size of max contracts might change, and rules about contract extensions might change. If those new rules are finalized and teams can digest them, it may lead to a flurry of trades and perhaps even a contract extension or two as teams position themselves.If theres no deal, it might freeze the transaction market somewhat because teams will be cautious about making deals when they dont know all the new rules.Q: So theres no way games would be lost this season?A: Right, even if theres no deal this week, the current agreement will carry past the NBA Finals and the 2017 draft. All of those events will happen as scheduled. Cheap Air Max 270 For Sale .
