AP Sources: Next NBA meeting set for Wednesday

NEW YORK (AP) — Two people with knowledge of the plans say NBA players and owners will resume talks on Wednesday. This comes a week after the sides vowed to meet more frequently in hopes of reaching a new collective bargaining agreement.

The session will be just the third between top negotiators since the lockout started July 1. But with the opening of training camps less than a month away, both sides said they recognized the urgency to pick up the pace.

The meeting — expected to be a small group — will be in New York. The site hasn’t been disclosed.
