This deal doesn't get to the finish line without them in there. I'm actually viewing this as a positive. Still cautious, but not out of the realm of possibility for there to be a deal in principle tonight with them in there.

I think you see a 10 year CBA with an earlier opt-out clause in year 6 or 7. The PA will be hesitant to exercise the opt out if the league continues to do well, but at least they get the comfort of knowing its there.
