I think they'll discard the offer and counter with the same offers they've tried to pass on the union for months. The Players are at least trying to reach an offer. If the owners think they can break the union they are in for a surprise. Sure the owners have a 300 million dollar war chest, which will be gone in the year. Where as 75% of the players can go years without a paycheck and the alot of the 25% can go to Europe and play if they really need the money.

Lets not also forget the teams making money and there a those making a lot of money will want to get this done as soon as possible. Because unlike other franchises they have a clue and know who to make the CBA work for them, not against them.
