Official vote is set for tomorrow but Woj makes it sound like a done deal.

Commissioner Adam Silver and the league's advisory/finance committee have shared the broad details of a plan with teams to play at The Walt Disney World Resort, sources said. The plan includes 13 Western Conference teams and nine Eastern Conference teams, eight regular-season games, a possible play-in tournament for the eighth seed, and playoffs, sources said.

The top 16 teams in the Eastern and Western conferences will be joined by teams currently within six games of eighth place in the two conferences -- New Orleans, Portland, San Antonio, Sacramento, Phoenix and Washington, sources said.

The play-in tournament will include the No. 8 and No. 9 teams -- if the ninth seed finishes the regular season within four games of the eighth, sources said. In that case, the No. 8 seed enters a double-elimination tournament, and the No. 9 seed a single-elimination tournament, sources said.

Teams will begin training at team sites in July and advance to full training camps in Orlando in July, sources said.

Hope it picks up some momentum. Looking like somewhere SE LA Miss is going to spend 4+ days on the dirty side. That could be a lot of rain.

It's official.


American professional sports will finally be back on July 31 (subject to usual caveats about COVID Wave 2, Civil Disruption, Hurricane Season and Cancellation of Local Sports Legends).
