Just a few months ago many of us were nervous about the possibility of an impending lockout, but in recent weeks the NBAPA and league owners have been closing in on a new CBA deal quickly.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the new CBA could extend 7 years, through the 2023-24 season with opt-outs in the year 2022.
The seven-year deal could potentially deliver the NBA labor peace through the 2023-24 season, unless the opt-outs are exercised in 2022, league sources told The Vertical.
Woj also says that the NBA and the NBAPA has agreed on several of the major issues and are finalizing negotiations.
The NBA is in its most prosperous time in league history. The gap between the NBA and the NFL is shrinking at a blistering pace, and with the NFL faltering on the public eye right now, avoiding a lockout could be what puts the NBA over the top.
We should know the full details of the new CBA in the coming weeks.
