The NBA lockout is over a week old, but there have yet to be any reports on how far the team owners and NBA Players Assocation have come since suspending operations last Friday. Apparently, according to CBS Sports' Ken Berger, that's because they haven't discussed anything since -- and neither side has plans to do so anytime soon, either.
Berger reported late Friday that there has been no contact between the two sides since the lockout was imposed on July 1 and that no future bargaining sessions are scheduled, either.
Considering the owners and the NBA Players Association couldn't come to an agreement for the entire year they had been working on it, fans probably should not have expected any breakthroughs in the short term anyway. With the way both sides are making it seem like they want to come to a quick agreement, though, not talking -- or even scheduling any talks -- probably isn't the best way to go about that.
