They don't have to pay salaries.

(Technically, I'm not exactly sure why we call it a "lockout", actually... unless the teams decide to not bother with the first part of training camps and close their doors a bit early on the players, but once the CBA expires, should it really be a "lockout" or a "strike"? It seems like it's neither? Can we call it a "strikeout", then? )
