Bucks, Jazz Execs Say NBA's New CBA Will Help Small Market Teams
Published December 12, 2011
ALL THAT JAZZ: Jazz CEO Greg Miller said, “I’ll speak for the Jazz and say that the resolution to the lockout -- the current CBA -- is a long way from where we wanted to be when we set out. But it’s a lot better for the Jazz than it was at the end of the last CBA. We’re better off from a competitive standpoint; we’re better off from a financial standpoint. Even though we pulled up short of what we originally wanted, I’m happy with the outcome.” Miller added, "From the perspective of a small-market franchise, I feel better about our ability to compete with the larger markets. ... I think I’ll just leave it at that" (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 12/11).
