According the The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the National Basketball Players Association is expecting their members to continue to receive their salary at regular intervals during the NBA’s hiatus.
Sources: The National Basketball Players Association has sent a memo to player agents stating that they “fully expect that players will continue to receive salary on their designated paydays” during NBA’s suspended season.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 14, 2020
The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. It is unclear when the league will resume play and there are several details to cover before players return to the court—a reality that Charania covered in a follow-up tweet.
The NBPA has not had discussions on potential adjustments and stated they do not expect to until further scheduling decisions are made, per memo. Many factors still in play. https://t.co/1Nv6rzeq1b— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 14, 2020
