But they also remain in a period of mourning, for Karl-Anthony Towns’ mother, Jacqueline, and for a relative in Malik Beasley’s family, both of whom have been lost to complications from coronavirus.

Wow that just sounds so unreal!  Finals in October!!

Which raises the next question. When will the following season start? At this rate there won't be a 2020-21 season.

December 25th is the target date that I've seen floated.

The play-in tournament would work as follows, according to sources: If the ninth seed is more than four games behind the eighth seed, the eighth seed earns the playoff spot; if the ninth seed is four or fewer games behind, then the eighth and ninth seed will enter a play-in tournament that is double-elimination for the eighth seed and single-elimination for ninth. ESPN first reported the league was working on 22-team models.

Hornets owner Michael Jordan was outspoken on Friday’s call, advocating for player safety and not having players have to return for meaningless games following a four-plus month hiatus, sources said. The Hawks and Bulls ownership groups said on the call that they wanted to return, sources said, but several players and staffers throughout both organizations prefer not to.

Among several other medical protocols expected to be proposed in the coming days, according to sources:

— Players unable to shower in the arena, would need to do so in their respective hotels

— Bench players would sit in spread-out rows, inactive players would sit in the stands

— No guests until the playoffs

Steve Koonin talked about the season starting in December not February. 

The new season proposed by the owners to start is December 1st. NBAPA still to vote on it.
