|NBA Teams May Host Player Workouts Again
|MIAMI (AP) -- NBA arenas are about to be unlocked.
Teams have been informed that they may open their doors to players on Thursday, NBA spokesman Tim Frank said.
Teams have been told they may host ''voluntary player workouts'' and physicals in advance of the planned Dec. 9 opening of training camps.
In addition, agents may begin talking to teams again at 9 a.m. Wednesday, though deals cannot yet be offered. Deals cannot be signed before Dec. 9.
It's the first time since the lockout began July 1 that players have been permitted to use team training facilities. The NBA and its players reached a tentative agreement to end the lockout early Saturday morning.
