If the NBA Players League insists on starting in January, they are ready to provide the NBA Players League with a 50-game season.
Recently, there have been rumors that the league office hopes to start the game on December 22 to preserve the national television game on Christmas Day.
NBAPA director Michelle Roberts (Michelle Roberts) said that the idea of starting the game in December is preemptive, and the league’s players will not rush to action.
Today, Mark Stein of The New York Times reported that the goal of the Players League is to start in mid-January-in the current 72 games, this season will be held concurrently with the Tokyo Olympics until July.
If the Players League asks to start the game in mid-January, it is reported that Adam Silver and the league office are prepared to provide 50 game seasons, which will have a significant salary impact on players.
As of now, it is expected that players will have to pay more than 10% of the standard salary for hosting fees.
If the season is shortened to 50 games, the percentage may rise to 40%.
Considering that there is less than three weeks before the NBA draft, the league doesn’t have much time to determine a timetable.
