The NBA is reportedly committed to holding a G League season. The league is considering ‘a bubble concept in the Atlanta area that would cost NBA teams an entry fee in the $500,000 range,’ per Marc Stein.

The G League cancelled the season last year due to the COVID-19 outbreak. A “bubble’ style could be the solution for the G League, but not all teams are expected to participate.

Furthermore, players on two-way deals will be able to stay with their NBA teams for up to 50 games this coming season due to COVID-19 concerns.

The situation will be more complex, specifically for players that could be going back-and-forth between the NBA and the development teams.
