NBA approves new format, July 31 as restart date

The NBA Board of Governors approved on Thursday a new competitive format and July 31 as a tentative restart date.

According to the new format, 22 teams that had the best record at the moment of season's suspension will continue playing at The Walt Disney Company's World Resort near Orlando, Florida in a single venue. Each team will play eight additional "seeding games," followed by a potential play-in tournament for the eighth, last remaining playoff place in both of the conferences, while playoffs will be carried out as it was the case in the previous years.

The last possible game of the 2019-2020 season, the potential game seven of the league finals, would be played on October 12, according to the plan.
