The new deal runs through the 2023-24 season. However, there both sides can choose to opt out after the 2022-23 season.
The two sides have until December 15 to decide to opt in or out of the current CBA.
There had been a fear that one or both sides would want significant changes to the distribution of revenue which has skyrocketed in recent years thanks to new television contracts.
