NBA Officially Locks Out Refs

On the heels of his tweet that the league is set to start training replacement refs, comes the official news from Adrian Wojnarowski that the NBA has locked out the referees:

Talks ended on Thursday, when the league and NBA Referee’s Association were unable to come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement. The NBA will use Developmental League and WNBA officials to start the preseason, and perhaps, the regular season. […]

The union believes that the NBA is asking for too many give backs in the league’s current proposal, and voted 57-0 among its officials to reject the NBA’s latest offer.
