Already anticipating another NBA Lockout?
Coon notes that under the current CBA, players are guaranteed 50 percent of the league’s forecasted BRI and 60.5 percent of the difference between forecasted revenue and actual revenue, meaning players are set to receive a total of $2.384 billion next season. Given the favorable terms awarded to owners in the 2011 CBA and the improved financial health of the league and its teams, Coon predicts NBA players will activate their opt-out clause in 2017 from the CBA and re-negotiate to get a larger piece of the league’s revenue. A lock-out would result: I expect the players to opt-out in 2017, and for the league to impose a lockout on July 1, 2017 (because they can’t do business without an agreement in place), However, negotiations will be quick and smooth (similar to 2005), and there will be a new CBA in place in time for the 2017-18 season to begin on time.
CBA Expert Predicts NBA Player Lockout in 2017 | The Fields of Green
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says he has "no expectation" that players will opt out of the collective bargaining agreement in 2017, potentially leading to another lockout. The 10-year deal that the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years.
