The NBA has entered into exploratory conversations with the Walt Disney Company about restarting the remainder of its season at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida, in late July, NBA spokesperson Mike Bass said Saturday. “The NBA, in conjunction with the National Basketball Players Association, is engaged in exploratory conversations with The Walt Disney Company about restarting the 2019-20 NBA 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, Bass said. “Our priority continues to be the health and safety of all involved, and we are working with public health experts and government officials on a comprehensive set of guidelines to ensure that appropriate medical protocols and protections are in place.” – via Ramona Shelburne @ ESPN

Scott Gustin: BREAKING: Disney just sent me their statement confirming the report: “The Walt Disney Company has a great, long-standing relationship with the NBA. We are engaged in conversations with them about completing the 2019-2020 season at the ESPN Wide World of Sports…” – via Twitter

Scott Gustin: Everything confirmed today is the same as what has been previously reported via “sources” — today is the NBA and Disney confirming those reports. FWIW: It would be EXTREMELY surprising if the NBA and Disney confirmed these discussions unless they were VERY close to an agreement – via Twitter
