Representatives for the owners and players reached the agreement, which could bring NBA basketball back as early as Christmas Day. Neither side went into specifics about the deal, which would result in a 66-game NBA season.

Oklahoma City advanced to the Western Conference finals and took eventual NBA champion Dallas Mavericks to six games.
