Well, it’s not the best news. But it certainly is not the worst.
The NBA is considering moving the 2020 Draft to a date in September, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey. The draft originally was scheduled for Saturday, July 25.
Free agency for the 2020-21 season also might be moved, according to the report. A previous report from The New York Times’ Marc Stein suggested free agency might not begin until fall.
While this could initially come off as bad news, there could be a bright side to this story. If the NBA is considering hold a draft and beginning free agency in the fall, that means the league likely is confident in its ability to complete the 2019-2020 season currently on hold.
So, fear not NBA fans. This could be a sign of good things to come.
