NBA Lockout: Players' Union Reps Will Vote On Modified League Proposal, Says Report

When 30 player representatives gather with top union officials on Monday, they will be asked to vote on an amended version of the league's NBA lockout deal, reports Sam Amick of SI.com. The league presented the union with its newest proposal on Thursday; if the union does not accept it on Monday, the NBA said it will pull that proposal off of the table and replace it with a harsher version that includes a hard salary cap.

By presenting an amended version of the NBA's proposal, the union could very well be negotiating internally to come up with a deal it can present to the owners as acceptable. If the team reps do approve such a deal, that would put the burden on saving the season back on David Stern, who would have to convince his owners to take the deal.

If a handshake deal is reached this week, Stern has said a 72-game schedule will begin on December 15.
