There are already concerns that the NBA could be heading toward a work stoppage in 2017 when both the owners and players have the ability to opt out of the current collective bargaining agreement.
"Believe it or not — I can't speak for the union or anything — but it's not something I'm talking to teams about yet," Adam Silver said. "I think it's premature."
The NBPA recently rejected the owners' proposal to smooth out the rising salary cap.
"We're operating under the current CBA and building stage," Silver said. "There will be a time for that but (now) it's premature."
