NBA Lockout Talks Last Just Two Hours, Will Reconvene Wednesday

NBA lockout talks held Tuesday in New York City lasted just two hours before officials from the league and players' union separated to discuss their positions. Derek Fisher, the president of the National Basketball Players Association, told the assembled media that the two sides planned to meet again Wednesday before breaking for Rosh Hashanah.

Fisher also told reporters not to read into the brevity of Tuesday's meeting.

Since the sides last met on Thursday, the NBA cancelled 43 preseason games and indefinitely postponed the start of training camps. The league was scheduled to open camps on Oct. 3, which is next week. Obviously, considering the sides seem to be nowhere near a deal and there has been no free agency period, that became impossible to pull off.

Fisher told reporters that no new proposals were delivered on Tuesday, but that each side needed to discuss internally the ideas and concepts at play.
