SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The NBA told teams that the number of players and coaches allowed at franchise facilities will be increasing in the coming days and weeks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Previously, a limited amount of players were allowed to participate in workouts at team facilities due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Wojnarowski reported that some of the restrictions will be opened up at the NBA ramps up operations in hopes of completing the 2019-20 season beginning in July.

According to a league memo obtained by the NBA insider, the league “will allow up to 10 coaches in facilities” starting on Tuesday, June 23.

Wojnarowski reported that teams “can have four players” at team facilities from June 23-30. From July 1-9, the limit will increase to eight players at a time.

Currently, the National Basketball Players Association and the league are negotiating for the 22 teams to finish the regular season in a bubble environment at Disney World in Orlando, Florida beginning on July 30.

Games will reportedly be played at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Additional Details Of NBA’s Proposed Restart

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that the league has already designed specific hotels for each of the 22 franchises participating in the completion of the season.

The NBA reportedly assigned Disney hotels to those teams based on seeding.

According to Charania, the Utah Jazz will stay at the Gran Destino Tower, which is a part of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.

The bubble environment will reportedly include hotel amenities, 24-hour VIP concierge, and other entertainment.

NBA players will reportedly be allowed to “attend other games” as well.
