NBA Lockout Deal Doesn't Have All Owners' Support, Says Report

A set of owners are not happy with the NBA lockout deal that commissioner David Stern has left on the table, reports ESPN's Chris Broussard.

As many as 11 of them participated in a conference call on Monday to grouse or gameplan -- it's unclear -- ahead of Wednesday's deadline for the players' union to accept the deal or face a dramatically worse offer. Regardless, Stern went on SportsCenter Monday evening to reiterate that his offer, if taken by the players, would be approved by the owners. That's not something he would promise without reasonable assurances it were true.

The deal on the table includes a 50-50 split of revenue and a few more salary cap system restrictions. It doesn't appear the union will take this deal, but the players are pushing for one more meeting ahead of Wednesday to attempt to strike an accord. Union president Derek Fisher has indicated that the players, whose most recent revenue split offer was 51 percent for players, could move again if they receive system concessions.
