New York — NBA players broke off negotiations with the league Thursday night, saying there had not been enough progress to get a deal done to end the lockout.
The league offered the players a revised offer after nearly 11 hours of bargaining, but union president Derek Fisher said it doesn't address all the necessary system issues that are important to the players.
"There's not enough progress to get a deal done," Fisher said. "That's the disappointing part. We want to get back on the court."
Now, the union will regroup, talk to their player representatives, figure out what to do next and possibly resume negotiations with the league next week.
