Utah Jazz: The Lockout is Over!

The Lockout is Over!

Posted by Broox Anderson

ANNABELLA, UTAH — 11:05 a.m. — Oh, how long I’ve waited to write these words: the lockout is over! The NBA and NBPA reached a tentative agreement early Saturday morning (about 3:00 a.m. EST) to end the lockout. Terms of the deal were not released.

The agreement now must be ratified by 15 of 29 owners and a majority vote of the league’s some-450 players. There is little doubt that the new CBA will be shot down by either party; meaning, of course, that the season will be  scheduled to start on December 25th, Christmas day.

According to several sources free agent signings and training camps will begin on the 9th of December, followed by a short preseason beginning on the 17th, and then the Christmas-day games on the 25th.

Stay tuned to Purple and Blues fore more on the NBA and all things Utah Jazz!

the lockout is over!
