NBA Lockout: Camps, Preseason Games To Be Postponed Friday, According To Report

ESPN's Ric Bucher reports that the league will announce postponements for training camps and some preseason games on Friday due to the ongoing NBA lockout. League and players' union officials met Thursday, but apparently conjured up no progress in ongoing talks. Camps were slated to open Oct. 2 and the first preseason games are scheduled for the following week.

With opening night of the regular season slated for Nov. 1, the doomsday clock is ticking louder than ever. NBA commissioner David Stern did tell reporters on Thursday that league and union officials will meet again next week, though it's unclear where progress will come. The point of highest contention right now, according to reports, is the structure of the team salary cap.

Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press reported that Stern will speak to members of the owners' labor committee on Friday. The announcement to postpone training camps and games could follow shortly thereafter.
