Default NBA's latest cost-cutting move

An Eastern Conference executive said that because of the economy, he wouldn't be surprised if at least 20 NBA teams carry 14 or fewer players next season to save money. Considering that teams can have a maximum of 15 players, such a scenario would mean at least 20 fewer jobs. It could also mean that the days of developing young players at the end of rosters may be limited - or even over

Sounds like one of the opening salvos in the upcoming CBA negotiations. If they can split the players up according to those who want the mega bucks, and those who want their jobs (the vets nearing retirement and maybe getting pushed into retirement early, and the younger raw players looking for the years to develop into something) then it gives the owners a chip to use.
