Charity Game Canceled Due To Possible NBA Deal
A charity game involving NBA players scheduled for Sunday was canceled at the last minute because of the possibility of an end to the NBA lockout, according to the Associated Press.
The event organizers sent out a release on Saturday that said many of the players scheduled to participate in the game in New Castle, Ind., were advised to prepare for the owners and players reaching an agreement.
Some of the players scheduled to participate were Washington’s John Wall, Memphis’ Zach Randolph and Los Angeles’ Eric Gordon. The cancellation comes shortly after a report from ESPN’s Chris Broussard that said “progress is being made” in the labor discussions on Saturday.
