Lockout postpones program

POSTED July 26, 2011 10:25 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — With its players locked out, the NBA has postponed its rookie transition program scheduled for Aug. 9-11.
The event, run jointly by the NBA and the players’ association, provides first-year players with information to help prepare them for their futures.
Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver says in a statement Tuesday that the program will be rescheduled once the sides agree on a new collective bargaining agreement.
The league already has canceled its Las Vegas summer league as a result of the lockout that began July 1.
Players are given three years to complete the rookie program in case they are unavailable the summer before they begin their careers.
