As Adam Silver and the NBA comb through all possible scenarios for restarting the season, one item they have to consider is moving back the start of the 2020-21 season, it appears they're doing exactly that.
I've been discussing this for weeks on end, the NBA can't expect to restart a season (in any form) in late June and then start up the following season on time.
