With the NBA season now on hiatus in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the question is when will fans see the return of basketball?

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, league owners and executives are calling mid-to-late June their “best-case scenario.”

Even then, the game will be very different. On the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation of holding no events with 50-plus people for the next two months, the plan is to host games without any attendees.

Wojnarowski says the NBA is also scouting alternative locations so they can potentially hold the postseason in August.

What do you think is the best move for the remainder of the NBA season?
