NBA Commissioner Adam Silver opened up about a potential December start in the 2020/21 season.

Silver and the league were planning for the next season to start on December 1, yet the Commissioner feels this date is ‘a bit early’ to him.

The NBA was in talks with the NBPA for a December start, with training camps opening in mid-November.

Yet, according to recent reports, the league is examining to push back free agency and the start of the season (to January or even February).
