Representatives for NBA owners and players will resume collective bargaining agreement negotiations Saturday, CBS Sports reported.

NBPA vice president Roger Mason confirmed the planned talks, following a union meeting Thursday in New York.

Mason said the NBPA remains unified, CBS Sports reported, refuting stories this week that claimed union president Derek Fisher and executive director Billy Hunter have become divided. Fisher and Hunter addressed the reports with individual open letters to union members.

Owners and players have not met since last Friday, when NBA Commissioner David Stern canceled 2011-12 regular-season games through November.Brian T. SmithTwitter:
