With action on the court on hold indefinitely, the NBA is devising a new way to provide fans with their basketball fix.
Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reported the league is considering a players-only NBA 2K tournament that would feature "some big-name players." The event may launch as soon as Friday on ESPN.
Haynes added that each team plans to have a "player gamer representative."
The NBA brought the 2019-20 season to a halt March 12 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported some around the league consider Labor Day weekend as the latest completion date for the 2020 Finals. Wojnarowski added that nobody "wants to limit the possibility of the NBA salvaging something of a season," so a firm deadline remains unknown.
