Even though the NBA hasn't set an official start date for the 2020-21 season, commissioner Adam Silver said the league could target January.
"The goal for us next season is to play a standard season, 82-game season and playoffs.
When the NBA Board of Governors and National Basketball Players Association voted to resume this season in June, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the league gave teams a "working timeline" that included opening training camps for next season Nov. 10 and opening night on Dec. 1.
"Our number one goal is to get fans back in our arenas," he added.
The current season resumed July 31 with 22 teams playing at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
