NBA Players, Owners Meet On All-Star Friday For Labor Talks

As reported by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski earlier in the day, multiple NBA players and representatives met with team owners this afternoon in Beverly Hills for continued labor talks. Wojnarowski reports that among those present were New Orleans' Chris Paul, Atlanta's Al Horford and Joe Johnson, Miami's trio of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, and Utah's Deron Williams.

The NBA Players Association has announced a press conference scheduled for Friday evening in downtown Los Angeles with NBPA Executive Director Billy Hunter, NBPA President Derek Fisher and members of the NBPA executive committee, of which Paul is the only star player.

The union and franchise owners are locked in a dispute over revenue splits and other issues. If an agreement is not reached by June 30, the league could lock out players on July 1. A lockout cost the NBA 32 regular season games and All-Star festivities in 1998.
