Two Celtics Stars Were Heavily Involved In NBA Restart Process

When the NBA finally does return, it’ll be due in no small part to the contributions of two Boston Celtics.

The league on Friday night is expected to unveil the schedule of its return to play plan. A total of 22 teams will go to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. — despite the recent surge in COVID-19 cases — to play out the remainder of the campaign.

And during a conference call with the media Friday afternoon, NBPA executive director Michele Roberts indicated that Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown were heavily involved in the process of getting things going again.

The NBA season is expected to restart at the end of July, with the Celtics reportedly going down to Florida on July 8.
