NBA commissioner Adam Silver joined the NBA players on a Player’s Association conference call on Friday and in no uncertain terms laid out the immediate future of the league as he knows it.
Silver, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski told the players the league is preparing for games without fans perhaps as long as through the 2020-21 season and warned of tough negotiations ahead as the league tries to overcome the hits their bottom line will take without any gate revenue.
He reiterated his desire for a full playoff season for the current year, including seven-game series at each level and suggested that if play resumes it would be safest if contained to one or two controlled sites as has been widely speculated. Silver said the two most likely sites to play host to games would be Orlando or Las Vegas.
He even addressed the event that should a player test positive for COVID-19 upon the league’s returning to play, that player would be removed from the proceedings but the hope would be to continue to play with added testing for those players subjected to the affected player.
