First two weeks of NBA preseason canceled

After little progress was made earlier today, the NBA is expected to announce cancellation of the first two weeks of training camp and preseason tomorrow in a conference call with league owners.

The NBA is on the verge of canceling the first two weeks of training camp and preseason games, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.  The two sides had met today with reportedly little to no movement.

"The calendar's obviously not our friend, but we're not going to give up on the process because of the time," Derek Fisher, president of the National Basketball Players Association, said afterwards.

Stern is expected to announce the cancellation tomorrow in a call with league owners.  The two sides are expected to resume discussions next week.

The league was schedule to begin preseason on October 9th, with the Sixers first game coming against October 10th at Boston.  The Sixers first home preseason game was scheduled to be October 11th against the visiting Knicks.

As of now, the regular season is still scheduled to begin on time, with the Sixers first regular season game to be November 2nd at Toronto, and the home opener Noevember 4th against the Timberwolves.  Both are appearing unlikely, however.
