NBA, refs to meet today

THE BALTIMORE SUN

Six days before the start of its season, the NBA will sit down today in New York with Fred Slaughter, head of the locked-out game officials, for a negotiating session -- their second.

The league has barred its referees from working until a new bargaining agreement is reached and is using minor-league replacements in two-man crews to officiate exhibition games. Players have been critical of the replacements.

The NBA has offered a 10 percent raise this season, across the board, with 5 percent raises each of the next four seasons.
