The NBA has indefinitely postponed its NBA Draft Lottery and Draft Combine in May in Chicago due to coronavirus pandemic according to Shams Charania from The Athletic.
The NBA's Board of Governors voted on those items through a conference call, and it is expected that the NBA Draft, scheduled for June 25th., will also be pushed back.
Among other things discussed in the meeting were the possibilities to move back the start of the 2020-2021 until December. According to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN, part of that ongoing conversation surrounds the opportunity a delay could give NBA teams to get more fans in arenas for more games next season.
Regarding the topic on whether the NBA will resume its current season anytime soon is still unknown, but LeBron James cleared the air through twitter stating that the league hasn't canceled it yet.
Saw some reports about execs and agents wanting to cancel season??? That’s absolutely not true. Nobody I know saying anything like that. As soon as it’s safe we would like to finish our season. I’m ready and our team is ready. Nobody should be canceling anything. 👑— LeBron James (@KingJames) April 30, 2020
