New York (AP) - It appears the NBA will provide its annual Christmas day treat for the masses.

The two sides in the league's labor dispute met for more than 15 hours Friday in New York, before announcing in the early hours of Saturday morning that a handshake deal has been reached to end the 149-day lockout.

Barring complications, the NBA is looking to play a 66-game season beginning with a December 25 triple-header that includes a finals rematch between the champion Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat.

Training camps are tentatively set to open December 9, with free agency getting under way at the same time.
