2020 NBA Draft Draft Date Locked in

Recommended Posts

 

Seems pretty late to me.Conf Finals should be over by end of Sept and NBA Finals by mid-October at the latest (unless they string it out)

 I wonder about the start date of the 2020-21 season. Will they start the season a month after the draft? I doubt it but we shall see.

Hmmm December Winter League? 

I think it rules out a Christmas start for the regular season for sure.

I think they are trying to push back as much as possible in hopes of a vaccine early next year. I wouldn't rule out like a Feb or Mar start date for the regular season.

I've been saying March for quite a while, and would be surprised if COVID and labor issues get resolved satisfactorily enough to start.

The CBA needs to be revised based on a significant decrease in basketball related income going down, plus the fact that they will want to address some player issues.

I think he's referring to "Summer League." I'm not sure if that's happening this year, or if draft picks (and UDFAs) will just go straight into camp.

Yes, I understand that. My point was, if the draft is a week before Thanksgiving and they need a Winter League (Summer League) which more than likely wouldn't start until after Thanksgiving probably sometime in December, I don't see the season starting on Christmas Day which has been the talk for quite awhile that the NBA would start on Christmas Day. You would have 1 month after the draft to have some type of Winter League/Summer League, training camp and pre-season. That's not all happening before December 25th.

I guess my point is, we don't know if Summer League is even happening. They could just go straight into camp, and just do a couple preseason games like the bubble and just go from there. They obviously don't need more than a month to do that given that's what they did in the bubble, but free agency has to be in there as well.

I think they pushed it back to LATE December so that probably means January or February.  Maybe they just start up after the Super Bowl....

Silver said that a December restart was looking very unlikely but nothing has been ruled out yet.

I bet it's closer to Feb. 1st than Christmas. Silver wanted a Christmas opening day, but that's too soon this year.

A separate question is how they start, Michelle Roberts says it will have to be in bubbles around the country, and then hopefully fans in home arenas later in the season.
