What a new NBA calendar might look like


While the NBA is trying to find a way to end the 2019-2020 season and crown a champion, Commissioner Adam Silver has prepared the teams for the possibility of a delayed start until 2020-2021 due to the pandemic of coronavirus.

There is support for early December that lasts until the end of July or August, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. This type of plan may resemble what Hawks CEO Steve Koonin proposed in March to increase television ratings.

So what could an adjusted NBA calendar look like, and how would the key dates surrounding games and transactions change? The current cap calendar for all seasons begins on July 1 with a free agency and ends on June 30. Whether the 2019-2020 season resumes or not, this will have to be adjusted.

Although the league has yet to confirm its plans for the calendar, here is a proposal on how everything could change if there is a 2020 post-season.
