NBA and referees union reach new agreement

The NBA and the NBRA (National Basketball Referees Association), the referees’ union, have jointly announced that they have reached a new collective agreement, for a period of 7 years. It will take effect from the 2022-23 season, and will extend until the 2028-29 season. No strike or lockout of referees to be expected, as was the case in 1977 and 1995.

It is recalled that the collective agreement (CBA) between the league and the players expires at the end of the 2023-24 season. Discussions should nevertheless take place earlier, since the two camps can decide to leave (opt out) of the current agreement as early as next December.

In 2021-22, 75 referees served full-time in the NBA.
