For basketball fans, players, and owners around the world, Christmas Day will be much brighter this year, as the NBA has announced a tentative agreement in principle on November 26, 2011. After 15-hours of negotiations that began on “Black Friday,” both sides finally came to an agreement at approximately 3 A.M. in New York.

Though both sides didn’t get exactly what they wanted out of the negotiations, both are satisfied, as the owner’s were able to shrink the players’ initial Basketball Related Income (B.R.I) from 57 percent down to an estimated number between 50-51 percent.

There are still B-side issues like age limit, drug testing, D-League, etc to be discussed in future meetings when a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) will come into fruition.

As of now, here is a rundown of the potential new season:

  • Free Agency and Training camps will both begin on December 9th, that means while players and coaching staff begin work for the 2011-12’ season, agents and front office personnel will be contacting free agents and discussing new deals.
  • The opening of the season is set to begin on December 25th, Christmas Day. There will be a triple-header as the Boston Celtics play the New York Knicks, the Dallas Mavericks receive their Championship rings as they face the Miami Heat in a rematch of last years finals, and the Chicago Bulls open in Los Angeles against the Lakers.

Now, here’s a current rundown of the 12 Spurs under contract:
