NBA Lockout: League, Union Representatives Reportedly Spoke On Monday

Representatives from both sides of the NBA lockout spoke on Monday, reports ESPN's Chris Broussard. It's unclear what exactly the discussion entailed and how long it lasted, and no new formal negotiations have been announced. But the league and players' union are in fact communicating.

Billy Hunter, the director of the players' union, said Monday on Bill Simmons' podcast that the union will meet with the league to resume negotiations provided that owners become willing to negotiate without players accepting the proposed 50-50 revenue split as a precondition. That ultimatum reportedly led to the dissolution of talks on Thursday, and has put another two weeks of regular season action in jeopardy.

The NBA and players' union negotiated for three straight days last week, a record high during this lockout. In comparison, the NFL and its players' union negotiated for 16 straight days about a month before its lockout even began.
