The band will get back together on Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET to continue NBA lockout talks that stretched for 16 hours on Tuesday and early Wednesday. David Stern, Billy Hunter and the bargaining committees for each side will again meet with federal mediator George Cohen, who began work on the lockout on Monday.
After meeting with each side separately on Monday, Cohen led a bargaining session more than twice as long as any that came before it. The league and players' union have been unable to make progress despite heavy negotiating over the past month, and it appears that Tuesday was no exception, as not one reporter passed on leaked info that pointed to real progress on the major issues that vex the sides.
It seems unlikely that the Wednesday talks will go around the clock; NBA owners are in New York for league meetings, some of which have been rescheduled to allow for lockout talks early Wednesday.
