For the 22-team format, the 2019-20 season is set to resume on July 31 with the NBA Finals ending “no later” than Oct. 12.
If the season actually starts on July 31 and is able to finish, then the NBA Draft Lottery would be Aug. 25 with the Draft taking place on Oct. 15.
Finally, the NBA 2020-21 regular season “would likely start” on Dec. 1.
