NBA’s Board of Governors Approves 22-Team Format, Draft Moved

Clarity has been finalized on Thursday.

In what has become the biggest day of the hiatus in terms of talks to resume the season, the NBA’s Board of Governors have approved the league’s 22-team format. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, 29 of the 30 teams voted in favour as we now await for July 31st to arrive.

The Portland Trailblazers were the loan team to vote against the format.

The eight teams who will not be making the trip down to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando are as follows: the Charlotte Hornets, Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, and Chicago Bulls.

The league will finish a condensed version of the regular season, upon which time if the no. 9 seed trails the no. 8 seed by fewer than four games,  those teams will enter a double-elimination, play-in tournament to determine the final playoff spot.

Additionally, the NBA has chosen to move the draft lottery to August 25 and the draft itself to October 15. Free agency will commence on October 18.
