The NBA and NBPA have extended today’s deadline for either side to serve notice on terminating the collective bargaining agreement until Friday, November 6th.
Both sides are continuing to negotiate a number of issues ahead of the 20-21 season and are expected to maintain a dialogue over the weekend.
The main issues for the sides to come agreement on are when the season will start and the percentage of salary that will be withheld to players in escrow.
The NBA would like to begin the season on December 22nd, while the players have pushed for a January 18th start date.
The NBA and union have essentially agreed to a salary cap of $109 million for the 20-21 season.
