The NBA has finalized the revised CBA put in place for the restart of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. It basically sets in place new transaction deadlines for certain players, including options for pending free agents. Here’s a list for some of the top names, including Anthony Davis and DeMar DeRozan, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The League also put in some guidelines on protocol for Covid-19. There is a new insurance policy that protects players from career-ending injuries that may be caused by coronavirus.
