NBA Lockout Talks Haven't Yet Led To Any Compromise, According To Report

CBS Sports' Ken Berger reports that despite more frequent and optimism-inducing NBA lockout talks occuring over the past two weeks, no major movement has been madeon a serious financial gap between the league and players. Berger cites five anonymous sources who have been briefed on the three sets of high-level talks between top officials from the league and players' union that have occured since August 31.

From Berger:

"I don't think they've made any progress there at all," one of the people briefed on the negotiations told CBSSports.com. "They're talking a lot, and the conversations are more cordial. But as far as the real numbers, I don't think there's anything there."

It's not all gloom, though, as Berger reports that the purpose of expanded talks including the full NBA labor committee and union's executive committee scheduled for Tuesday is to present the ideas developed over the recent talks to a wider audience and take a temperature check on their saleability to the wider bases.
