I'm not sold. Even if the news is true, which it could be, the players are thinking "we got them caving in" and they are trying to get more and more out of them. Also, the owners win big-time now. Players get absolutely nothing, nothing out of this deal. No incentive for them to do it.
They can't lie about what they offered. They can hide a poison pill in the CBA I suppose that the players won't accept and they won't take out but either way this does help the owners PR-wise. Because it's an actual attempt at working out a deal instead of just trying to bully one.
