NBA teams to play scrimmages in Disney World before season resumes

The NBA has instructed teams on the full training camp timeline, including July 9-29 in Orlando with three intersquad scrimmages.

Players traveling outside of the U.S. need to report by June 15 to team markets, while the rest of players need to arrive by June 22, Adrian Wojnarowski also notes.

The NBA has also informed teams that starting today, up to two coaches/development personnel can work out a player, according to Shams Charania.

Beginning June 23, a team’s head coach can supervise a player’s workout and can be one of the two coaches working with players.

The NBA’s important expected restart dates are as follows:

  • July 30-Aug. 14: Seeding games
  • Aug. 15-16: Play-in tournaments
  • Aug. 17: Playoffs begin
  • Aug. 30: Family/guests of teams arrive
  • Aug. 31-Sept. 13: Conf. Semifinals
  • Sept. 15-Sept. 28: Conf. Finals
  • Sept. 30-Oct. 13: NBA Finals

The target date for a possible Game 7 of the NBA Finals is now Oct. 13 instead of Oct. 12.

All dates are subject to change.

The NBA’s required coronavirus testing window for teams will take place from June 23-30.

The NBA and NBPA are still working out the details of an offseason program of camps, scrimmages and OTA’s for the eight teams not included in the Orlando restart.

Negotiations on health and safety protocols for the league’s restart are also ongoing, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.
