NBA, Players Heading To Federal Mediation
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The NBA and its locked-out players are going to use the same federal mediator who tried to resolve the NFL's labor dispute months before it eventually ended.

George Cohen, director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, says Wednesday he will oversee negotiations between the sides.

Cohen says the meetings will start Tuesday in New York.
