Minneapolis:

A group of NBA players that has filed an antitrust lawsuit against the league is asking a Minnesota judge to hold off on any court proceedings while the two sides work on a new collective bargaining agreement.

The players sent a letter to U.S. District Judge Patrick Schiltz on Monday. The letter informs the judge that the two sides have reached a tentative agreement to resolve their labour dispute, including lawsuits filed in Minnesota by the players and in New York by the owners.

The letter states that both sides are working to "reduce the tentative resolution to a comprehensive, written agreement." The players ask Schiltz to stay all scheduled court proceedings until December 9, by which time they plan to inform him on whether a settlement has been finished.
