The 2020-2021 NBA season is officially scheduled to begin on December 22.

While there isn’t a complete schedule yet, previous reports claim that the upcoming regular season will be shortened from 82 to 72 games to wrap up in June 2021, allowing players to participate in the 2021 Summer Olympics. This, along with the season’s televised Christmas Day games, is expected to be worth between $500 million USD and $1 billion USD in both short and long-term revenues.

Logistics of the upcoming season are yet to be announced; it is still unknown whether or not the league will return to the Walt Disney World bubble in Orlando, Florida.

Additional dates basketball fans need to look out for include the 2020 NBA Draft on November 18, the beginning of free agency negotiations on November 20 and the free agency signings on November 22.
