I'm pretty sure both the owners and the players knew a lockout was coming. The players were perfectly free to wait until a new CBA was signed to sign with a team...I wonder why they didn't?

Just perhaps it was because they knew the salary cap was likely going to be significantly reduced under the new CBA...and the fact that they negotiated high signing bonuses indicates they new a long lockout was possible.
