NBA Lockout: David Stern, Owners Will Hold Conference Call Thursday To Discuss Next Steps

Now that NBA players have filed multiple antitrust lawsuits against the NBA, commissioner David Stern has asked the owners to participate in a conference call on Thursday to discuss their next steps in the lockout, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The call had been scheduled earlier in the week by the NBA’s labor relations committee.

David Stern has said that he is in a rush to initiate contact with the players’ attorneys following the lawsuits.

The NBA players filed an antitrust complaint against the NBA in Minnesota as well as one in Northern California Tuesday evening. According to players' attorney David Boies, the suits were filed as a result of the owners "overplaying their hand" in negotiations that ended with a 50-50 split on basketball-related revenues. The players had rejected that offer.
