1. A method of wireless communication utilizing a scheduling entity, the method comprising:
communicating with a first user equipment (UE) via a first connection during a subframe in a communication transmission;
reconfiguring the first connection to reverse a payload data direction of the first connection during the same subframe, such that a link priority of the reconfigured first connection is lower than that of a second connection between a second scheduling entity and a second UE; and
transmitting a priority override signal to the second scheduling entity to modify the link priority of the reconfigured first connection to be higher than that of the second connection during the subframe, such that a transmission of the reconfigured first connection has priority over the second connection during an interference between the second connection and reconfigured first connection.
