NBA board of governors approves plan to return to play

The NBA is one step closer to returning to play…

NBA one step closer to returning to play

On today’s board of governors call with league commissioner Adam Silver, the owners approved a plan to finish out the remainder of the 2019-20 season at Disney World in Orlando, where eventually, a champion will be crowned, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The vote required three-fourths support to pass, and it received a 29-1 vote from owners on the call, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The owners now need formal approval from the National Basketball Players Association before the league can move forward. The NBPA is expected to hold a virtual call on Friday to approve the plan that the owners just voted on, according to the New York Times’ Marc Stein.

The plan, when approved, would have 13 Western Conference teams and nine Eastern Conference teams going to Disney. The playoffs would start in August and the NBA finals would likely stretch into October.
