While it's already been decided that the 2020 NBA season will not feature any fans when it resumes, a new report suggests the 2020-21 season could be headed for a similar fate.
The NBA's Players Association believes that no fans will be permitted to be in attendance for games next season, The Athletic reported on Friday.
That nugget of news came amidst the recent reports of a conference call on Friday that featured players voicing concerns over both the safety of the NBA's return plan for 2020 as well as how players can continue to bring attention to systemic racism and police brutality issues that have sparked nationwide unrest.
With the NBA still working out kinks for the return of the current season, not much is known about how the next campaign will be constructed. The 2020 NBA season is tentatively estimated to end in October, meaning the next season would start later than usual. There have also been discussions of potentially shortening the 2020-21 season as well.
