Report: NBA eyeing Labor Day weekend as latest possible date for season

“I’ve been told Labor Day weekend, that they’d like to have a champion crowned by Labor Day weekend,” Wojnarowski said on “Get Up” Tuesday morning.

He said that the Labor Day deadline wasn’t a hard one — that league owners would consider a scenario that saw the NBA Finals extend later into the second week of September. But the concern of pushing it later risks further delay to starting the 2020-21 season.
