The NBA's guaranteed contracts arbitration hearing is going to take a lot longer than expected.
A nine-day adjournment was announced Tuesday, meaning a verdict might not come until October when training camps are due to open.
Tuesday was supposed to have been the final day of the two-day hearing. Instead, three additional days have been added, Sept. 3, 4 and 8.
Arbitrator John Feerick will have 30 days to render his decision, which could eat up a huge chunk of the time the sides would have had to work out a new collective bargaining agreement.
Training camps are scheduled to open Oct. 6.
