NEW YORK (AP)—NBA players made it clear Tuesday: No deal.
No fear of Commissioner David Stern’s ultimatum, either.
"The current offer on the table from the NBA is one that we cannot accept," players’ association president Derek Fisher(notes) said.
Instead, the players said they will ask for another meeting with owners before Stern’s Wednesday afternoon deadline—and sound willing to agree to a 50-50 split of revenues under the right circumstances—in an attempt to end the lockout and save the season. [cont'd]
