Woj Reports Disney for the NBA Season Resume Plan

UPDATE* – ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski addressed the latest scenarios for the NBA’s regular season to resume at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

Maybe Disney World is, “where (NBA) dreams come true.”

After weeks of back and forth between two potential host cities, The Athletic’s NBA Insider Shams Charania is reporting that the city of Orlando and Walt Disney World has become a frontrunner for a return to NBA basketball in 2020.

Add this rumor/news to the many other 2020 NBA season restart updates we have been covering since COVID-19 shut down the season.

Charania’s report does not include any further updates on when the season would likely begin, but according to his sources, a condensed version of a training camp would likely begin in the middle of June, with games beginning back up in mid-July.

Orlando and Vegas were not the only cities up for consideration. Charania also referenced that Houston would also have gotten major consideration, but Orlando’s ability to have a private property to house everything on-site was considered, “the most appealing of all the possibilities all along.”

Back on May 12th, NBA commissioner Adam Silver stated that he intended to make a decision on the future of the remaining season within a two-to-four week stretch.
