NBA "NOT ENCOURAGED" BY NBPA'S LATEST PROPOSAL
Published March 30, 1995
The NBPA submitted a proposal last week that would "dramatically increase the salary cap, alter free agency and institute a rookie salary wage scale." Under the plan, the current salary cap of $15.9M per team would be raised to approx. $27M. Also, rookie contracts would be limited to three years in length, the draft reduced to one round and restricted free agency eliminated. NBA Deputy Commissioner Russ Granik, in advance of yesterday's meeting: "All I want to say is we're not encouraged" (David Moore, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/29). NBPA Exec Dir Charles Grantham told THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY that on the "key issues" -- salary cap, etc. -- the two sides still have "major differences" (THE DAILY).
