Where and When
The NBA will bring 22 teams to Orlando to start the season on the proposed date of July 31. All of the teams will play eight regular season games to determine what teams will be in the NBA playoffs. That will be followed by a play-in tournament and then the NBA playoffs will begin. During this time, the NBA will hold the draft lottery.
