While the players and owners have yet to reach agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement, optimism has emerged this week.

As a result, team executives have canceled scouting trips in preparation for free agency.

Agents have also been quietly reaching out to teams on their free agent clients.

Teams have been preparing for free agency for months, but there appears to be a new sense of urgency.

The NBA and the Players Association have moved to the cusp of ending the four-month old lockout, and there’s strong belief on both sides that a Friday bargaining session could culminate with the framework of an agreement to preserve most, if not all, of a full season.

“It’s moved to a very good place,” one source briefed on Thursday’s 7-hour bargaining session told Yahoo! “There’s a strong expectation [within the negotiations] that hands will shake [Friday].”

Negotiations will resume at 10:30 a.m. ET Friday with talks expected to quickly progress to the proposed revenue split between the league’s owners and players. Both sides sounded optimistic they could soon settle the major issues separating them from a new collective bargaining agreement.

“I think we’re within reach – and within striking distance of getting a deal,” Players Association executive director Billy Hunter said. “It’s just how receptive the NBA is, and whether they want to do a deal.”

NBA commissioner David Stern declared it will be a “failure” for the league’s owners and players if a new labor agreement isn’t finished within the next few days.

Hunter said both groups were “wiped out” after a 15-hour negotiating session that began Wednesday afternoon and lasted past 3 a.m. ET Thursday. It was easier to cut short talks on Thursday because union economist, Kevin Murphy, had to travel back to New York from Chicago. In resuming the talks on the revenue split (basketball-related income), Murphy is vital to the players’ negotiations.

The league and players union have moved closer to consensus on several important issues within the past two days. Sources said the sides have made significant progress on one of the labor fight’s most vexing obstacles: the luxury tax teams would have to pay for going over the salary. Nevertheless, there’s still a couple sticking points with the tax that need to be resolved.

I still get the feeling that something will happen tomorrow to derail this a while longer.

I posted my musical version of the lockout on the blog page just a few hours ago. I guess they couldn't bear to have any more of that. You're welcome NBA fans.

In a sign that a new collective bargaining agreement is taking shape -- and of the league's desire to preserve a complete schedule if a deal is indeed struck -- the New York Times has learned that the league has reached out to its arena contacts in an effort to block off dates on the calendar that come after the 2011-12 regular season was previously scheduled to be over.

"League officials, anticipating a resolution, are quietly preparing for an 82-game season," writes Howard Beck. "The N.B.A. has begun calling arenas across the league, asking them to keep dates open in late April, according to arena officials."

The sides broke talks around 10 p.m. EDT on Thursday and will meet again Friday morning. Both the league and union gave the media cautiously optimistic assessments that indicated an agreement was within their grasp.

Yeah, I'm guessing they want to start the season by end of November -Dec 1 and extend the season to the end of April. In other words, start 3 weeks late and finish 2-3 weeks later then usual.

Sources say that there’s a determined push led by San Antonio Spurs owner Peter Holt to allow teams to have at least two years to decide whether or not to amnesty one player, with multiple sources telling ESPN.com this week that they believe the concept -- with restrictions that are still being haggled over -- has indeed won sufficient support to be included in the new labor deal.

Six years ago, teams had only two weeks to decide whether to use the amnesty clause or lose it forever. Now? There is a growing likelihood that teams will be able to “save” their amnesty clause through next season, or perhaps beyond.

I think I would go a little crazy if there was no season....

I'm glad they are close to a deal!

I don't see them going past this weekend....

Think about it they are only close to 100 million apart, if they were to still follow through with the 1st 2 weeks of cancelled games, they will loose over 160 million. It makes sense for both sides to get a deal done like now!

At this point it seems the players are trying to get all the little things (ie. better benefits, rules & regulations) in their favor, but the revenue sharing will probably end in a 50-50 split.
