The collective bargaining agreement is without question No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 5 and Nos. 6-10 on the wish lists of both the WNBA and its players association this offseason.
While the two sides work towards a new CBA, the existing CBA it was announced, has been extended for 60 days through New Year’s Eve.
The WNBA and WNBPA have agreed to extend the current collective bargaining agreement for sixty days to December 31 and will continue discussions regarding a new agreement.

What this means for the talks is yet to be seen. Could the extension be because the two sides are far apart or because the two sides are close and may need a few extra days to finalize all the details?
