Mediator George Cohen Could Return To NBA Lockout Talks

NBA lockout talks are dead right now, but when they reconvene, federal mediator George Cohen could return to the table, reports Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski. Cohen facilitated three days of meetings in October before a reportedly ultimatum on a 50-50 revenue split from San Antonio Spurs owner Peter Holt cut talks off on Oct. 20. Cohen issued a statement saying that he did not feel as if his presence would help at the time.

The two sides did rekindle talks a few days later, but those too broke down, and for the same reason. While the lockout deal is reported to be up to 95 percent complete, the major, driving issue -- the split of revenues -- remains in question. Each side has said it will not move from its current position on the split. The players' union has topped out at 52.5 percent, while the league is stuck at 50 percent.
