A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell is moving closer to a possible resolution to his legal troubles before Oakland’s pitchers and catchers report to spring training Feb. 14.

The Chronicle has learned that Maxwell has a settlement conference scheduled for Feb. 12 in Phoenix, which means the state is willing to discuss a plea deal for the 27-year-old. Maxwell was indicted by a grand jury Nov. 7 on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct after allegedly pointing a gun at a food-delivery person on Oct. 28 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

His trial date, initially set for April 10, has been rescheduled for Aug. 9 should the sides be unable to come to a resolution before then.

“Right now, Bruce is focusing on spring training and getting ready for the season,” said attorney Rhonda Neff, who is representing Mazwell along with Michael Kimerer. “We’re working toward finding a resolution.”

Those with knowledge of the case have expected a plea deal to reached before spring training.
