(SportsNetwork.com) - The WNBA and its players' union have agreed to terms on
an eight-year collective bargaining agreement.
Reports circulated last month during the NBA's All-Star weekend that the two
sides had worked out a long-term pact.
According to the WNBA's website, the new deal includes an increase in roster
size from 11 to 12, as well as a revenue-sharing program.
The new deal, which includes an opt-out clause after six years, replaces the
previous CBA that expired last September.
