Lockout News

Heard a rumor on Miami sports talk that the Owners would keep the Bird
exemption if player contracts were only guaranteed for the player once
the season has started. The way it was explained was if a player signs a
5 year contract then each year is guaranteed separately as each season
starts. Of course there would be some sort of provision made for injury.
It kinda sounds a little like the NFL agreement where no contracts are
guaranteed except for their so called franchise player.
What do you all think, on the surface it sounds feasible.
