The 2022-23 NBA schedule is not expected to be released until after next week, according to NBA insider Marc Stein.

The NBA season schedule is typically released in late August or early September. For example, the 2021-22 season schedule was released on Aug. 20.

Earlier this week, NBA insider Keith Smith speculated that the schedule could be released sometime next week. However, he noted it could be delayed due to "some big names still on the trade market."

Most notably, Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, who requested a trade at the end of June, has yet to be moved. In addition, Nets point guard Kyrie Irving, Los Angeles Lakers point guard Russell Westbrook and Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell have been included in trade rumors.

SNY's Ian Begley reported this week that there has been "pessimism" that a trade for Durant will be completed in the "near future," adding that franchises are not interested in helping the Nets move the superstar in a three or four-team deal.
