NBA Heads To Mediation: More Games On The Line

NEW YORK (AP) — NBA players and owners are meeting with a federal mediator, and Commissioner David Stern believes more games could be canceled if there isn’t movement toward a new labor deal.

George Cohen tried to resolve the NFL’s labor dispute. Now he’s overseeing basketball’s negotiations for the first time. Stern wants immediate results, saying during a round of interviews last week that proposals could get worse and more games could be lost without a deal Tuesday.

But large gaps remain between the sides, with both seeking 53 percent of basketball revenues and players opposing owners’ attempts to significantly change the salary cap system.

The first two weeks of the season already have been wiped out.
