The NBA is kicking around not only its timetable for finishing this season, but they’re also looking at what to do for the next.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the league might push back the start of the 2020-21 season until Christmas Day.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski noted last week that the idea would allow for wrapping this season while allowing enough time from the COVID-19 outbreak to have fans consider again sitting inside packed arenas.
Starting in December isn’t unheard of for basketball. Following the 2011 lockout, the 2011-12 season began on Christmas.
