Doesn't matter what the deal is, the players will reject the next proposed offer and the season will be in rags.
Reports say the sides recent negotiations have picked up where the last ones left off meaning the players are probably willing to accept a 50-50 split with a restrictive luxury tax as long the NBA eases up on some of the other things (specifically rules for tax-payers). Another report suggests that Stern was asking the owners if they'd be okay with the MLE being the same for everybody (i.e no specific small MLE for tax payers).
