The NBA players and owners are trying to set up their next bargaining session this week. They are hoping to meet Wednesday and/or Thursday in New York City, according to sources close to the situation.

With the scheduled start of training camp just two weeks away, both sides are feeling a heightened sense of urgency. While tough rhetoric has come from both camps, sources say neither wants to postpone the start of the regular season.

The players, who earned 57 percent of Basketball Related Income under the last collective bargaining agreement, were willing to drop between 52 and 54 percent, sources said.
