The NBA is beginning to move away from the idea to reseed the four finalists during the 2022 playoffs.
Many teams have pushed back on the proposal that was included alongside an in-season tournament. The concern was due to increased travel and a loss of traditional rivalries.
The teams on coasts have largely been against this reseeding concept, according to sources.
The NBA had hoped to create a scenario where the two best teams, regardless of conference, could meet in the NBA Finals.
