    This is a rumor? Hasn't this been expected for some time? Why would they sit on the draft lottery results over the weekend?

    He means the change from the press conf on thursday and revealing of the lottery winner thursday to friday. They didn't hold any lottery, of which we know of.

    not a big surprise if this is true, because aren't the players suppose to vote on Wed. and Thurs., and the owners voting after the players on Thurs.

    These guys meet for hours on end to finalize this thing and there's now "rumors" of it being delayed 'til friday because of no hotel rooms!!??? Is it really that hard to find one or two hotel conference rooms in Mid-July????

    Yeh that makes sense, because there's only one hotel in the entire city that could possibly accommodate a press conference :sarcasm:

    this is believable, plus the deal can't even be ratified until its 100% finalized, and from reports from late last week, they were still doing some final touches
