    Report: NBA owners expected to approve 22-team return, potential play-in

    CHARLOTTE NORTH CAROLINA - FEBRUARY 16 Adam Silver NBA Commissioner talks to the media during the NBA All Star Commissioners Media Availability as part of the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend at Spectrum Center on February 16 2019 in Charlotte North Carolina

    It's becoming clear what the rest of the season could look like when the NBA attempts to return this summer after a pause of nearly five months.

    NBA commissioner Adam Silver is planning to propose a 22-team return-to-play format to the league's board of governors Thursday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    Owners are expected to approve the proposal during the call, which is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET.

    Each of the 22 teams - the 16 current playoff teams plus the six teams currently within six games of the 8-seed in their respective conferences - will play eight regular-season games at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando to help determine playoff seeding, sources told Wojnarowski.

    Thirteen of the 22 teams set to compete are from the Western Conference. The six current non-playoff teams traveling to Orlando would be the New Orleans PelicansPortland Trail BlazersPhoenix SunsSacramento KingsSan Antonio Spurs, and Washington Wizards.

    All players and coaches staying in Orlando will be permitted to go golfing and eat at outdoor restaurants but must practice social distancing while doing so, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

    Further details of a potential play-in tournament following those regular-season games have also come to light.

    If a conference's No. 9 seed trails the No. 8 seed by more than four games at the conclusion of the regular season, the latter will automatically clinch a playoff spot.

    But if the gap between the eighth and ninth seed is under four games, those teams would reportedly meet in a double-elimination, play-in tournament to determine the 8-seed.

    A 9-seed would need to win two straight play-in games against the 8-seed in order to make the playoffs under this format, whereas the 8-seed would only have to win one game to clinch a postseason berth.

    The NBA is targeting July 31 for a return to play, while the season could extend until October 12 in the event the 2020 Finals reach a winner-take-all Game 7, Wojnarowski adds. Teams will have full training camps throughout July before play resumes.

    The NBA draft lottery and combine are now expected to be held in August as part of the changes to the league's calendar, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

    At least the league and players union was able to work together to bring basketball back. I bet everyone in the NBA is looking at MLB and laughing their asses off. MLB is screwing the pooch on a golden opportunity to regain lost fans.

    There is a difference though, the NBA played a grip of games already and made money where the MLB never even got out of Spring Training.

    That has nothing to do with the league/owners and players union being able to work together. It would have been very easy for the NBA to just cancel the rest of the season, but they didn't and worked it out.

    Of course it does.  No people in the stands at all for Baseball owners equals less money hence why less was offered to the players.

    The NBA already played games w people in the stands and made money.

    I get the economics of it all, I just think the issues MLB have extends beyond the economics. Otherwise, they would be working in good faith to come to an agreement.

    There's really nothing to dislike about him....unless your team went against him in a playoff series in the early 2000's.
