NBA lockout talks continued on Saturday in New York City, without the stars (sorry, Baron Davis) and without the alleged heat of Friday's Dwyane Wade-David Stern showdown. The lack of battles might in part be due to the fact that, according to Ken Berger's sources, the league and union representatives focused on Saturday on non-economic issues at play in collective bargaining agreement.
It's unclear if that includes salary cap structure, which with the players' share of revenue remains among the most contentious and important items on the table. Otherwise, there are any number of small items to negotiate, including the age minimum, drug testing and off-court obligations. It's hard to imagine a six-hour (and counting) negotiating session would focus on just those items, so some slice of salary cap structure is likely to be involved.
That said, everything is economic: the cap structure debate informs and interacts with the revenue split issue. If progress is made in one, progress is made in the other ... in theory.
