The NBA's Board of Governors is expected to vote Thursday on Commissioner Adam Silver's proposal for resuming the 2019-20 season, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday. Ahead of the vote, Wojnarowski reported some pertinent details regarding the proposal, including a definitive end date for the NBA Finals.
In the timeline shared with teams, Oct. 12 is the last possible date for an NBA Finals Game 7, Wojnarowski reported. The NBA draft and opening of free agency reportedly would follow.
Other details of Silver's recommendation to resume the season include a previously reported plan of games involving the 16 teams currently holding playoff position, and six more teams within six games of the eighth seed in each conference.
Those teams include the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference and the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference.
While Thursday's vote requires three-fourths passage of the 30 teams on a plan, team owners reportedly expect the board of governors to overwhelmingly support whatever plan is proposed.
