NBA Lockout Talks Will Address Revenue Split First Thing On Friday

The NBA lockout talks ended early on Thursday night, but the two sides will meet again on Friday as they work to end the impasse between the owners and players associated in the three-month long mess. It sounds like the first thing addressed on the agenda Friday will be the revenue split, a point of contention throughout much of the talks.

It wasn't talked about during the open press availability, but former ESPN writer Chris Sheridan reports that the split of basketball related income will lead Friday's talks for better or worse.

Billy Hunter told the world the sides in the NBA lockout are "within striking distance of a deal," and he told SheridanHoops.com even more: "The BRI split is the very first thing we are going to try to tackle in the morning."

The BRI split wasn't even mentioned on Thursday as the Players Association economist wasn't in the meetings, but he was expected to return Friday as the two sides look to end the lockout and salvage some sort of 82-game season.
