The NBA is now contemplating holding the playoffs in a single site without any spectators. Given their history in Las Vegas with hosting the yearly Summer League, the league is considering the idea of keeping all participating teams quarantined in the city as they try to finish the season and crown a champion.
"Las Vegas has been a destination that has been discussed, built around the idea of literally perhaps using a casino, playing games in potentially a ballroom with courts," NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski said. "There's lots of different scenarios, almost all of which would be built around the idea of a return without fans in the stands."
Austin Rivers expanded a bit more on this new contingency plan while on Instagram Live, which was transcribed by Twitter user @FlyByKnite.
"Quarantine the players in July in Las Vegas and to have some form of a tournament that eventually crowns a champion," Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated mentioned on the Felger and Mazz podcast. "It's workable. It's doable."
