NBA Announces Most Recent Labor Proposal To Players
The NBA office announced their most recent proposal to the players association on Monday night, via their Twitter account.
The proposal includes a “50/50 split in band of 49-51% as suggested by mediator” George Cohen, no hard cap, fully guaranteed contracts, no “rollbacks” to existing player contracts and the midlevel exception will start at $5 million in year one and grow.
“[The] NBA system will have 30 teams spending [between] $2B & $3B per season,” the league tweeted. “Enormous opportunity for all free agents.”
The proposal comes following an ultimatum from NBA Commissioner David Stern that said the players must accept the latest proposal or risk facing a worse labor deal.
