We’ve been waiting to hear official confirmation that the NBA will likely be finishing the season at Disney World.
Yesterday, we found out more about the potential dates and arrangements for the NBA at Disney and what teams would likely be joining the league at the Orlando resort. The plan was pending approval until it was just announced that the National Basketball Players Association has approved the 22-team format for the NBA to finish the season.
According to ESPN, the NBA and the NBPA have officially decided on and approved the plan to finish the season in Walt Disney World. The coming weeks will have the two organizations working out some details as they move towards a July 31st resumption of the season.
The NBPA does note that “Various details remain to be negotiated and the acceptance of the scenario would still require that all parties reach agreement on all issues relevant to resuming play.” Starting dates for next season will be discussed in the coming weeks as well.
