The NBA lockout is over? (UPDATED)

1st UPDATE: 6:17 p.m. EST: The Deseret News suggests that a former NBA executive is confident that a deal ending the NBA lockout will be announced before the end of the day.
The NBA lockout might be over soon, according to RSL owner Dave Checketts.

The pro sports mogul, a former president of the Utah Jazz and New York Knicks, set the sports social media world abuzz this afternoon while telling Salt Lake City-based sports radio station ESPN700 that his connected sources confirmed that "they have a deal in place."
Checketts told co-hosts Bill Riley and Spence Checketts, his son, that "positive news will come" out of ongoing negotiating meetings between the NBA owners and the players' union, according to posts on their Twitter accounts.
Comcast SportsNet in New England says its sources are refuting Checketts' claims.

ORIGINAL POST: If the Twitterverse is to be believed, the answer is yes.
