The NBA and NBPA are holding discussions about a possible second site for the eight teams not participating in the Orlando restart. The Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Atlanta Hawks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors face a scenario where they will go nearly six months without playing a competitive game.
Sources tell Sam Amick of The Athletic that there is significant support from most of those eight teams about the concept.
Those eight teams could even play televised games.
The Cavaliers, Pistons and Hawks have been the most vocal among the group in support of the idea. The Knicks have expressed reservations, at least in part because they have a roster with several pending free agents.
One of those teams could serve as host, or they could also play in a city such as Las Vegas or Houston.
