It looks like basketball is coming back sooner than expected.

According to NBA insider Shams Charania, the NBA players association approved the NBA’s proposal for a 72 game season that will start on December 22nd. This means that the season would conclude in July right before the 2021 Summer Olympics in Japan.





Charania also tweeted that the players association is finalizing health and safety protocols, as well as a collective bargaining agreement. They are discussing the possibility of a 17-18 percent escrow on player’s salaries over the next 2 years.
