In speaking with The Athletic on Wednesday, NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts said the league's proposed December 22nd season start date "defies common sense".
Roberts made it clear the Players Association is actively working on a response to the league's proposal but the issue would not be resolved this week. Aside from the schedule, next season's salary cap is also being negotiated, though Roberts said the two sides are closer on that issue. Shams Charania writes that multiple sources confirm the salary cap is expected to be $109 million with the tax line set at $132 million.
