Charity hoops game canceled in Indiana
Saturday, November 5, 2011
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A charity game involving NBA players scheduled for Sunday in New Castle, Ind., has been canceled.
A release from event organizers says that because of the "uncertainty" of Saturday's NBA negotiations in New York many of the players scheduled to participate were advised to prepare for a possible agreement.
The "King of the Castle" event was to pit the Knox Indy Pro-Am League stars against Mario Chalmers' Rio All-Stars. Washington's John Wall, Memphis' Zach Randolph and Los Angeles' Eric Gordon were expected to play.
NBA owners and players met for several hours with federal mediator George Cohen on Saturday.
