After talks setback, what’s next for NBA players?



NEW YORK (AP) — When union leader Billy Hunter talks to players Thursday in Las Vegas, they are going to have questions.

Hunter admits he doesn’t have the answers.

After a frustrating meeting with NBA owners on Tuesday, Hunter’s not sure whether players considering stints overseas should hold off in hopes of a new labor deal soon or take their chances.

With less than three weeks until training camps, players and owners are still divided over the salary cap, and no further meetings are scheduled.

NBA owners also are scheduled to meet Thursday, and Stern has said there won’t be any decisions to cancel training camps at that session in Dallas.

The league’s lockout began July 1.
