NBA Lockout: Still Happening

Howard Beck // New York Times

They are holding meetings, swapping proposals, rhetoric and suspicious glances, and pursuing a labor deal that could stabilize the N.B.A. and avert a costly lockout. But the lockout, in so many ways, is already in effect.

There will be no N.B.A. summer league in July. There will be no overseas games in October.

The coming draft will be missing at least 10 top prospects. Scouts and trainers are being laid off. Merchandising orders are on hold.

Contingency plans are being made. Uncertainty reigns.
