“We were informed today that the Women’s National Basketball Players Association has opted out of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement following the 2019 season.  The league and its teams are committed to an open and good-faith negotiation that is rooted in the financial realities of our business.  We are getting to work immediately and are confident such a process can lead to a fair deal for all involved.”
