The targeted start date for the NBA’s 2020-21 season remained undefined after recent comments from commissioner Adam Silver. Highlighted by The New York Times NBA Insider Marc Stein, Silver revealed that the league could be looking at a return to action at some point in January of 2021.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver tells Bob Costas on @CNN that his “best guess” is that next season will begin in January at the earliest— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) September 22, 2020
It appears that the report from earlier this month, that suggested a start date might fall around Christmas Day, has shifted.
Outside of the start of next season, the 2020 NBA Draft is scheduled to take place on November 18.
