Sources say the 'Super Seven' agents, who wrote a letter to their clients this week asking them to resist making a bad deal with the owners, are working on the details of a conference call to discuss the collective bargaining agreement.

Participants would include Arn Tellem, Billy Duffy, Mark Bartelstein, Dan Fegan, Jeff Schwartz, Leon Rose and Henry Thomas.

Monday's letter advised the players not to ratify any deal that includes a reduction in basketball-related income beyond the 57 percent or any other systematic changes from the last collective bargaining agreement, which expired July 1.

Hamilton is one of Rose's most long tenured clients and helped him grow his agency.

Rose is agent to LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, amongst others.
