MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Minnesota federal judge has put the legal fight between the NBA's players and owners on hold to give the two sides time to finish their collective bargaining agreement.

U.S. District Judge Patrick Schiltz on Tuesday, Nov. 29, granted a request by the players and issued a stay of all court proceedings. The stay is valid until Dec. 9, by which time a formal collective bargaining agreement is expected to be approved.

The two sides reached a tentative agreement Saturday, Nov. 26, and are now in the process of completing the negotiations. Before the proposal can be approved, the players must re-form their union and some secondary issues must be resolved.

If the deal is ratified, training camps are tentatively scheduled to open Dec. 9.
