NBA to allow more staff, guests in “bubble”

Via bostonglobe.com

The NBA will allow teams advancing to the Finals to bring three more staff members and 12 team staff guests into the Orlando “bubble”.

That’s an average of four guests per staff member.

Last week, it was announced that NBA coaches and staff members were allowed to bring guests in the “bubble” starting with the Eastern and Western Conference Finals.

This came after Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone voiced his displeasure that coaches weren’t previously allowed to have their family members with them like the players were.

Along with extra staff and staff guests, the NBA is also allocating 40 seats (20 per team) for off-campus guests for the two teams in the NBA Finals, according to Shams Charania.

Each player is allowed to invite two guests per game including family, longtime friends, managers or agents.
