NBA Lockout 2011 News: NBA, NBPA Meeting Set For Saturday

Union representative and New York Knicks guard Roger Mason told The Associated Press that the owners and players will resume negotiations on Saturday, more than a week since their last meeting.

The most recent labor talks occurred last Friday and fell apart in dramatic fashion. Afterward, NBA commissioner David Stern canceled the remainder of November regular-season games and said there is no chance of rearranging or extending the schedule to play a full slate of 82 games.

A source told ESPN's Rich Bucher that this could be the last opportunity for both sides to come to an agreement before NBA Commissioner David Stern cancels another chunk of the schedule, so the pressure continues to mount as the two sides keep trying but remain irreconcilable. Stern has already canceled all NBA games through November.
