Last month, we reported that the National Basketball Association, which suspended its season until further notice on March 11, was considering restarting the season at Walt Disney World Resort’s Wide World of Sports Complex.
Now, the NBA has confirmed that they are, in fact, looking at Disney World as a potential single-site venue for the league’s 30 professional basketball teams to continue the 2020 NBA season. They have a late July target date.
Orlando Sentinel reports that NBA spokesman Mike Bass stated that the NBA’s talks with the Walt Disney Company are still in the “exploratory” phases. Bass also indicated that Orlando’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex would be used for regular season games, practice sessions, and player housing.
