The Basketball Tournament is still scheduled to take place in July despite concerns surrounding COVID-19.
“They’re full-steam ahead. It’ll be interesting because I would think that if the TBT dates don’t change at all, they could overlap with the NBA playoffs, NBA Finals, and the Olympics. So there’s going to be a lot of competition on at that time. We’re making plans for our team, we’re making plans for the regional in Syracuse," said Boeheim's Army general manager Kevin Belbey.
League organizers met on Tuesday morning to discuss potential contingency plans.
Several players from the G League and overseas participate in the $2 million, winner-take-all tournament.
“In some ways, if the curve gets flattened and things quiet down. This could be one of the first sporting events that players are able to participate in. It could be a really good thing," added Belbey.
