MIAMI -- The NBA and its players have agreed to keep the most lucrative era in league history rolling.The sides agreed Wednesday in principle on a new collective bargaining agreement, one that could last up to seven years and needs now only to be ratified by players and owners in the coming weeks. The deal was struck a day before the sides faced a deadline for opting out of the current deal.If approved by votes of players and owners -- likely to be formalities -- there will be no lockout next summer and no labor issues for years to come.Its amazing. Im excited, union president Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers said. Im happy for our fans, the owners involved. Its a great thing.Three people briefed on the terms said the deal extends for seven seasons, with an opt-out possible after six. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side was releasing exact details.If the deal is ratified, the season will start a week earlier, preseason games would be capped at six and one of the most dreaded elements of the schedule -- the four-game-in-five-day stretches -- may be eliminated.Other details of the new proposed CBA include increases in values of rookie-scale contracts, minimum salaries and exceptions, with a 45 percent increase in minimum salaries across the board in the first year of the new agreement. The rookie deals will be proportionate to the salary cap, either rising or falling as that does. The average player salary is expected to hit $8.5 million next season and rise to $10 million by 2020-21 under the new terms.Its fair. Its fair, said Miami Heat guard Wayne Ellington, his teams player rep to the union. Thats all we were asking for.The deadline for opting out has now been extended to Jan. 13, with the NBA saying thats in order to give both sides enough time to review the terms of the agreement and vote to ratify.Thats the second-best news of the night, Wizards coach Scott Brooks joked when asked about the CBA right after Washingtons victory over Charlotte.Two-way contracts between the NBA and the D-League will be in play for the first time, which would figure to enhance player development. And contracts would be able to be extended for five, or in some cases, six years. That will give teams more leverage to keep homegrown players on their rosters, a priority for owners after Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City for Golden State this summer.Neither NBA Commissioner Adam Silver nor NBPA executive director Michele Roberts spoke publicly after the tentative deal was announced. Some players reacted quickly on social media, including Golden States Draymond Green -- who said one day we will get it right.... maybe.But most players who spoke Wednesday seemed thrilled.It just shows you how big the NBA, how popular the NBA is, that it cant afford a lockout, Toronto guard DeMar DeRozan said. People love the game too much. Its great.News broke of the tentative agreement just as Wednesdays games were starting. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra heard the news after a victory over the Pacers and said he felt a sense of relief.Were all very fortunate to be in this profession, Spoelstra said.Talks have gone on for months, and unlike those surrounding the most recent deal between the league and its players, these were mostly amicable. Most of the major issues -- such as keeping the split of basketball-related income the same as it is in the existing deal -- were agreed upon weeks ago.One element that held up the talks late in the process was a group licensing agreement. Among the four major U.S. pro sports leagues, the NBA was the only league that controlled its players marketing rights for sponsorships and media. Going forward, the players will now control their marketing rights.Included in the more-than-400-page document is a proposed program that addresses domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. Players and their families will be provided with education, training and counseling and players facing allegations will be subject to a new investigation, discipline and appeals process.Another issue addressed in these negotiations was a deal where the league would help fund programs to help retired players with medical expenses. That will kick in Jan. 1, even before this deal is likely ratified.I think everyone negotiated in good faith, Paul said. The conversations were great, everything was cordial. Everyone knows how well the game is going and didnt want to mess that up.NBA officials and players expressed optimism throughout the process, pointing to the leagues skyrocketing revenue and salaries -- thanks to a massive new television deal -- and rising TV ratings.It ensures a labor stoppage will be avoided, unlike the last negotiation before the 2011-12 in which the owners locked out the players for 161 days, resulting in a shortened season and plenty of frustration.For me, this is a relief, Heat guard Goran Dragic said. I want to play basketball. I didnt want to sit home.---Krawczynski contributed from Minneapolis. AP Sports Writers Howard Fendrich in Washington and Dan Gelston in Philadelphia and Associated Press Writers Terrance Harris in Orlando, Florida, and Raul Dominguez in San Antonio also contributed to this report.

Under Armour Soldes . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. http://www.underarmourpascher.fr/ . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. Chaussure Under Armour Pas Cher . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. Acheter Basket Under Armour . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. ATLANTA -- The Chicago Bulls hope their ability to get off to a good start can help them break a four-game losing streak against the Atlanta Hawks when the clubs meet Wednesday at Philips Arena.The Bulls (4-3) followed the quick-start recipe on Monday in a 112-80 win over Orlando and will try to carry that philosophy over against a Hawks team that swept four games from them last season.Need to get off to a good start, Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. When we do that, we generally play a good game.Chicago used a 15-0 run to take control of the game against Orlando and outscored the Magic 27-11 in the third quarter to put the game away. The Bulls got 20 points from Jimmy Butler in the win, which broke a three-game losing streak.Atlanta (5-2) is coming off a 110-106 road win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. The Hawks had three players top 20 points: point guard Dennis Schroder with 28, guard Kent Bazemore with 25 and forward Paul Millsap with 21.The 28 points was a career high for Schroder, who signed a four-year, $70 million contract extension just prior to the season opener. Schroder also had six assists against the Cavs.Dennis talks a lot of trash, but (Tuesday) he didnt say anything, center Dwight Howard said. He went and attacked the basket and we got a good win.Howard scored only seven points, breaking a streak of four straight double-doubles. But he had 17 rebounds and prevented Clevelands Tristan Thompson from geetting any inside points.dddddddddddd. Howard has adapted to his role as a defensive stopper and has shown he isnt afraid to mix it up. He took a shot on Tuesday that required four stitches on his lip.My job is to enforce the paint and as long as we get a win, it doesnt matter how much I score, Howard said. My job is to make sure they dont get but one shot at a time. That will help our team win.Chicagos defense was noticeably better against the Magic. The Bulls allowed a season-low 80 points and stopped a three-game stretch that had seen them allow 107 or more points in each game.Were not going to win too many ball games if our defense is not doing what it did, guard Dwyane Wade said.Wade will be making his Chicago debut in Atlanta. He has a career average of 22.1 points and 5.8 assists in 38 games against the Hawks when he played for Miami.Wade is joined in the starting lineup by point guard Rajon Rondo, center Robin Lopez and forwards Taj Gibson and Butler. The Bulls have five players who average in double figures, led by Butler (21.0), Wade (16.9) and Gibson 12.1).The Hawks won all four meetings against the Bulls last season for the first time since 2008-09. But Jeff Teague, who led the team in scoring in two wins, and Al Horford, the top scorer in another game, are both playing for other teams.
