The NBA is making progress on a calendar for the 2020-21 season.
The Players’ Association is rumored to be holding a vote amongst players Thursday or Friday between two different schedule scenarios that have games starting either in December or January. But players reportedly feel it’s “inevitable” that we’ll se a start before Christmas.
And if that’s the case, then preseason events are going to be moving pretty quickly.
It appears the draft still will be held Nov. 19, as planned. And the NBA will waste no time after that, according to multiple reports, beginning free agency 48 to 72 hours later by Saturday, Nov. 21 or Sunday, Nov. 22.
The NBA just completed its 2020 season in October, so this is quite a quick turnaround. But we certainly aren’t complaining about less time without basketball.
