The remaining steps to terminate the 'lockout'

It appears that, finally, there will be season in the NBA.

However, the labor dispute is not yet complete and although in principle, the two parties are in readiness to sign the new agreement , there are a number of formalities to fulfill and any dispute could derail the willingness of players and owners.
