After failing to reach an agreement in collective-bargaining discussions with the players' union, NBA commissioner David Stern announced last night that the first two weeks of the regular season will be canceled, with potentially more to come bar a quick resolution on myriad areas of contention.
The Grizzlies games affected so far:
Wed, Nov 2nd — @ Los Angeles Clippers
Thu, Nov 3rd — @ Utah Jazz
Sat, Nov 5th — Charlotte Bobcats
Tue, Nov 8th — Phoenix Suns
Fri, Nov 11th — @ Dallas Mavericks
Sat, Nov 12th — Toronto Raptors
Mon, Nov 14th — Sacramento Kings
CNNSI's Zach Lowe does a nice job here of laying at the issues at play at this stage of the negotiations. More to come.
