NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and the league’s board of governors continued discussions Friday about delaying the start of the 2020-2021 season until December, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The NBA board of governors voted Friday to postpone two May events set for Chicago – the draft lottery and the draft combine. The NBA Draft scheduled for June 25 has not yet been postponed but the report indicates that move is likely to occur.

The NBA’s thoughts on when to start next season are reportedly independent of the fate of the currently delayed 2019-2020 season amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more here.
