David Griffin, General Manager of the New Orleans Pelicans, seems confident the NBA will resume the season in the summer.

Griffin believes the league will return to action in June and July, despite the coronavirus crisis.

“So, it certainly makes you hope that when we do come back – and I believe that will happen – that we can pick up where we left off, because the image that we’ve created for ourselves of late is certainly the image we wanted fans to be left with.

It’s what we wanted people to think of us as and we wanted to play meaningful games in March and April. Now, unfortunately, because of what’s happened in this horrific pandemic, I think we’ll probably end up playing meaningful games in June and July, and that’s okay too,” Griffin said in an appearance on the Pelicans podcast.
