NBA UPDATE: Progress Reported After Marathon Session

NBA owners and players were making progress on one of the main issues confronting them during another marathon session Wednesday, meeting for more than 13 hours in talks aimed at ending the lockout.

The talks were centered on the salary cap system, a person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press, adding that "both sides are demonstrating a commitment to getting a deal done."

The sides got back to the table with a small group meeting less than a week after three intense days of mediation didn't produce a new labor deal. Wednesday's negotiations marked the second-longest bargaining session since the lockout began July 1.

Talks broke down last Thursday when players said owners insisted they agree to a 50-50 split of revenues as a condition to further discuss the salary cap system.
