After several months without NBA, it seems the league has finally come up with a feasible plan for the continuation of the 2019/20 season. There was a lot of uncertainty about whether the league would continue and if they should scratch this season off. There were also several indications on different timetables for return, but now it's official the league is starting on the 31st of July.
