The NBA and NBPA continue to discuss a number of issues ahead of the 20-21 season, including whether it will start on December 22nd or January 18th.

During a conference call with general managers on Monday, Adam Silver expressed some pessimism that they will be able to reach an agreement with the players in time for the December 22nd start.

"We're running out of time," said Silver.

In addition to maintaining a dialogue with its players, the NBPA are also talking to the league on a number of financial amendments to the CBA.
