NBA Referee Lockout Ends
NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA and its referees union have reached agreement on a two-year contract, ending a lockout of more than a month.

The officials approved the deal that was reached earlier this week in a vote Friday night. No details of the vote were provided, nor were terms of the agreement.

The referees will have a training camp this weekend and be ready when the regular season starts Tuesday. The league had been using replacement officials during exhibition play.
