It’s timing. Various reports suggested The second half of July is the date on which the NBA could return. But it is far from certain.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN, the season could start again in August and not in July. “It is possible that the league will make a recommendation to the owners on Friday, but that is still uncertain. The NBA believes that it has time to consider and discuss the matter. In fact, there is a possibility that the first games in Orlando in August and not in July. he wrote on ESPN.
If the NBA started playing again in August, players would have played without basketball for more than four months since the season ended on March 11. This is comparable to a full off-season that the NBA finalists would receive under normal circumstances.
