    "this was watershed moment," stern says in relation to both the labor deal and revenue sharing ($196 million). Six teams will get $16m each.

    stern: "it's fair to say this is my last [cba negotiation]. It's a 10 year deal with a re-open in six."

    stern humor: "it's not 4 a.m. What are we going to do?" he then acknowledges disappointing fans but says he'll make it up to them.

    stern: "pleased and proud to announce" board of governors approved labor deal and revenue sharing plan. Fair, but not perfect deal, he says.

    It would appear the lockout near officially over. This thread gave Bargnani a run for its money on total views but it looks like Everything Bargnani remains the champ.

    (Hopefully I have not jinxed the owners vote by removing this from the sticky (i.e. blue section) threads).

    B-list items explained

    Stein and Coon break down the B-list items in the new CBA:


    ESPN.com's breakdown of the freshly negotiated "B-list" items added to the deal since Hunter's original term sheet distributed to players on Nov. 26, along with several significant changes from the previous collective bargaining agreement, follows here:

    Drug testing
    D-LeagueDisciplineWireless microphones
    Salary cap and team salaries


    The sides agreed Nov. 26 to increase the minimum team salary from 75 percent of the cap to 85 percent in 2011-12 and 2012-13 and 90 percent thereafter. In Hunter's Wednesday memo to the players, minimum team salary drops to 80 percent, giving teams more time to transition to the higher salary requirements.

    Contracts and player salariesRestricted free agents
    Trade rules


    In the previous CBA, teams could receive a maximum of $3 million cash in any trade. The Nov. 26 agreement changed this limit to $3 million per year. Hunter's memo specified that the $3 million limit will grow by 3 percent each year -- meaning it will rise to $3.09 million next season -- and that the amount is not netted. Translation: Cash received in trade does not offset cash sent to other teams in trade.

    All indications remain that draft eligibility age will stay the same until there is time for further discussion.

    Also, unlimited D-League assignments for three years. Veterans can go, but only with consent. League had wanted five-year program.

    Players will be subject to offseason testing, but only for steroids, source says. Prior random tests were only from Oct. 1-June 30.

    Amnesty details

    Teams will not be able to use the amnesty provision on a player acquired in a trade going forward.The salary of any player waived via the amnesty clause will continue to count toward the salary floor.Finally: If a team bids on a player in the amnesty waiver process, it is bidding on the full length of his contract, not just the first season. In the event the Blazers change course and use amnesty on Roy, that would mean any team that bids, say, $4 million on the guard will be bidding to pay him at least that amount in each of the four remaining seasons on his deal.

    This is where we stand at the moment, according to a source close to the process. Things could change in theory, but with players scheduled to begin voting on the CBA on Wednesday afternoon, that seems unlikely.

    Via Twitter.com.... take any Marc Stein tweet with a giant grain of salt

    Hearing most likely scenario w/amnesty clause is teams getting seven-day window between Dec. 9-25 to use it or carry it into 2012 offseason

    Deron Williams actually just came out and said theres a 90% chance he resigns with New Jersey.

    I guess saying you're staying with the Brooklyn Nets is a little different than saying your staying in Oklahoma, but still. Good for him. Fans need that sorta thing.
    D-Will has been back pedaling a little on that statement, he says there is a good chance he re-signs with the Nets, but that the 90% number was just something he said without much thought.

    considering KD is just one year (?) into a new extension on a team thats heading in a very exciting direction its not hard to believe him. Can't think of any players that have said otherwise at the same point in their career. (Melo, Lebron, Vince, Dwight). Right now everything in OKC is sunshine and butterflies with a KD.

    It's refreshing, but is it believable? After all, didn't Paul just say the other day that his heart is in New Orleans?

    With the Melo saga last year and the Howard/Paul saga unfolding this year, the above is very refreshing.
