Sam Amick of The Athletic reports:
“Basketball guys are for it – they want to play,” one NBA player from a title-contending team wrote. Keep them very well-surveilled, but have them tested like every week and make sure they don’t wind up infecting each other or their families, and just let them play the season out.
When and if the NBA does resume, does that mean going straight to the playoffs? Does it mean the league will try and get the last 17 games of the regular season in? For the Philadelphia 76ers, that means a lot as they currently would face off with the Boston Celtics as the 6 seed.
For more details on the plan, Amick added:
One team owner, for example, discussed a scenario in which players were given approximately a month to get back in shape starting in early June, the regular season began in July and the Finals were eventually played in late October.
