Mario Hezonja has an idea on how the NBA season could be completed if it is resumed. The Portland Trail Blazers guard-forward thinks the in-season tournament that was proposed some time ago could replace the playoffs this season.

It remains to be seen if the season will be resumed at all. But if it will, the league will have to decide whether to stick to the original format or to use some alternative.

Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban recently said the games could extend even into August.
