Progress reported in NBA labor talks

NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA owners and players have ended 7 and a-half hours of negotiations in an attempt to end the lockout.

Though the first two weeks of the season have been canceled because of the lockout, union executive director Billy Hunter said a little progress was made and that talks will continue Friday.

Players union president Derek Fisher said "some progress" was made. NBA Commissioner David Stern agreed and said he was looking forward to making even "more and additional progress" on Friday.

Stern said there was "no guarantee" of a deal but added: "We're going to give it one heck of a shot."

Though the first two weeks of the season have been canceled because of the lockout, union executive director Billy Hunter said he believed 82 games were still possible with a deal by Sunday or Monday.
