This pretty much means anyone who declared for the NBA Draft out of college but didn’t hire an agent has more time to make a decision. They would usually have to make said decision on June 3 — either stay in the draft or go back to school. Because prospects have more time, this can only mean the timeline for the draft is being pushed back again.
It does mean good news for a return to basketball. If the NBA decides to move back this date it can only mean the draft is being pushed back. If that’s the case, they want it to come after the season finishes, which means we should get basketball soon — probably in about 2 months or so.
