NBA Locks In November 18 As New Draft Date
The NBA’s rescheduled draft date of Wednesday, Nov. 18, which had previously been considered tentative, has now been locked in, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
This represents the second delay for the 2020 NBA draft, which had originally been scheduled for June 25. When the end of the season was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the draft was pushed back to October 16.
However, the NBA and NBPA agreed to postpone the draft again to give the two sides more time after the end of the season to negotiate changes to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, assess the league’s revenues for the 2019-20 season, and agree to salary cap and tax figures for ’20-21, Wojnarowski writes.
