The NBA’s trade, draft and free agency periods open in full force this week. Prior to the start of those activities, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski delivered the details on the entire 2020-21 season in a rapid-fire Twitter session.

First, Wojnarowski confirmed that teams will have the opportunity to start completing trades on Monday.

Wojnarowski also confirmed that the salary cap will remain the same for the upcoming season, but he did deliver an updated projection for the years ahead.

With salary projections and trade windows out of the way, Wojnarowski provided a brief overview of the entire 2020-21 season.

He also explained that the NBA’s new play-in format still has to be approved, but it appears that is just a formality at this point. Finally, Wojnarowski pointed out that the NBPA and NBA have the option to terminate the amended CBA at the conclusion of both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons.
