Basketball may be nearing the end of their search for where to restart the season. After proposals of starting in Houston, Orlando, and Las Vegas it seems like we may soon have a winner.

Reports have come out that the NBA is now in exploratory talks with Disney over using its ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. NBA spokesperson Mike Bass announced the talks between the NBA and Disney for a potential return in late July. 

“The NBA, in conjunction with the National Players Association, is engaged in exploratory conversations with The Walt Disney Company about restarting the 2019-20 season in late July at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida as a single site for an NBA campus for games, practices and housing.” 

The complex in Orlando contains three arenas that would help to restart the season or have them jump right into playoffs depending on what the NBA plans to do. The plan on how the season will resume is still unclear but what we do know is that the NBA could have a plan in place that calls for the recall of players for a mandatory quarantine of two weeks in team market places as well one to two weeks of individuals workouts followed by a two-to-three week formal training camp before any resumption of the season would begin. 

Let’s hope that talks between Disney and the NBA work out so we can see some potential exciting matchups such as the Lakers vs. the Clippers to finish out the season.
