NEW YORK — Dressed in matching T-shirts urging solidarity, NBA players are meeting with owners with less than a week left before the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement.
The union's executive committee was joined by a large contingent of players in New York for player representative meetings who decided to attend Friday's negotiating session.
Executive director Billy Hunter says he was told late Thursday night that the players had decided to attend. He said the message of their attendance in shirts reading "STAND" was "just solidarity, that we have to stand together, we have to be unified and be prepared to address whatever the circumstance is, but address it together."
The CBA expires June 30 and the sides remain far apart.
