HOW THE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT WORKS FOR NBA PLAYERS

The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is a contract that the NBA is under. The rules of the players’ contracts, trades, revenue distribution, the Draft, and the salary cap is how it is dictated. Since the CBA expired, (causing the infamous lockout) players, coaches, owners are trying to agree on a new one. Not much has changed between the 1999 and 2005 versions of the CBA, in terms of the salary cap. Since they agreed on the player age minimum, players will get a bit higher percentage of the League’s profit. In addition, the League’s maximum slightly decreased compared to the 1999 CBA. Players like Chauncey Billups, John Wall, Zach Randolph, and Stephen Jackson are going to participate in the Impact Basketball Competitive Training Series played in Las Vegas. But I call it the NBA Lockout League. It has the same NBA rules, eight teams of seven or eight players, no coaches, and with ten minute quarters. The players want to keep in touch with they’re teammates, for example, Kyle Lowry, Chuck Hayes, Chase Budinger, and Courtney Lee will be on the same team. Mo Williams and Deandre Jordan hoping the Rookie Of The Year Blake Griffin will join them too.
