According to ESPN reports, the NBA is discussing the establishment of a second bubble position in Chicago for eight teams that were not invited to play in Florida.
NBPA President Michele Roberts has been communicating with Commissioner Adam Silver and others in the league on this topic, and they are working to find out more details.
The Alliance wants to ensure everyone’s health as it tries to return to the ground.
Some of the league’s general managers spoke with ESPN and said how they felt about another bubble scene in the playoffs.
A general manager said: “How they structure is almost irrelevant to us.”
“This is an opportunity for our young people to engage in some game simulations.”
Another official said: “Some of us want to see how things are going in Orlando.”
Orlando’s restart will include 16 teams currently in the playoffs, and 6 teams that are sitting on the playoff bubble.
The game was originally scheduled to resume at the ESPN Universal Sports Center outside Orlando in late July, and the remaining eight teams were removed from the plan.
The Chicago plan will allow forgotten teams to hold short training camps before playing in a summer league-type environment.
