WNBA and players agree on new CBA

Fri., March 7, 2014

The WNBA and the players’ union agreed to a new eight-year collective bargaining agreement Thursday night, pending approval by the league’s Board of Governors. The biggest change in the deal is an increase by one in the team’s maximum roster size to 12. There also is an improved revenue-sharing program for the players and a small increase in the salary cap.

The new agreement allows both sides to opt out after the sixth season. The previous contract expired on Sept. 30. – AP
