Bill Daly on Wednesday's negotiations

By ESPN.com staff

"We met I guess about 6.5 hours today with the assistance of federal mediator Scot Beckenbaugh. The parties were actually never in the same room together. We did several different caucus meeting rooms.

"Really, there's nothing new to report. We don't have a conclusion to the process. I think the players are doing something tonight. They're going to get back to mediator [Scot] Beckenbaugh tonight. He'll get back to us tonight. Really, that's all I have to say.

NEGOTIATIONS CARRY ON THROUGH NIGHT?
I have no idea. Nothing is going on tonight.

IS THERE A PROPOSAL ON THE TABLE?
No, there's not a proposal on the table. A mediator is going back and forth between the parties and there's no conclusion to this round in the process right now.
