NBA Approves Plan To Resume Season In July

The NBA’s Board of Governors have approved a plan to restart the suspended season.

The tentative date is July 31st with a start at Disney World, Florida amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The plan would see 22 of the NBA’s 30 teams play eight games, says Reuters.

This will determine a 16-team playoff field that would follow the traditional post-season format.

Four best-of-seven series would crown a champion no later than October.
