After months of optimism on both sides, Carmelo Anthony now says he’s “skeptical” that the NBA Players Association and owners will be able reach a new collective bargaining agreement before Thursday’s deadline.

“I’m skeptical of something getting done,” Anthony, vice president of the NBPA, told ESPN after the New York Knicks practiced Saturday in Los Angeles. “Do I think something could happen by the 15th? Yeah, I think something could happen. But I think this kind of put a dent in conversations. We had something so close. We were supposed to have a deal done weeks ago, and for this to happen at the 25th hour is tough.”

According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, sources on both β€Žsides of the negotiating table nonetheless expressed optimism Saturday night — despite the late snag and Anthony’s pessimistic forecast — that a new labor deal remains within sight.

Sources told Stein that control over licensing matters and the use of player likenesses has emerged as a significant issue in the latter stages of the labor talks.
