NBA PLAYERS UNION PRESIDENT WILLIAMS "CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC"
Published October 19, 1994
In an interview with USA TODAY, NBPA President Buck Williams discussed lockout rumors: "We're waiting on a ruling on our appeal of the court decision that upheld the draft, salary cap and free agency. (Then) we'll have an insight into what direction we're headed. Hopefully, when we do sit down we'll work out an agreement quickly." On playing the season without a new CBA: "Historically, these things have taken more than a year, and we're only three or four months into this scenario, so there's no reason to be alarmed" (USA TODAY, 10/19). But Pistons guard Joe Dumars is not so optimistic. Dumars: "I got a letter a few days ago laying out what hasn't been happening. It made me think a strike might be a possibility. Before, I thought we would get this worked out. But the letter made me think it might get ridiculous" (Dave Fuller, TORONTO SUN, 10/19).
