New York, NY USA - (NBA)

Monday, November 09, 2020

THREE POINTS

The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association announced today that they have reached agreement in principle on the start of the 2020-21 season, as well as adjustments to certain provisions of the current collective bargaining agreement impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The agreement is subject to a vote by the league’s Board of Governors.

The parties have agreed in principle to the following:

• The 2020-21 season will begin on Tuesday, December 22.

• The 2020-21 season will feature each team playing a 72-game schedule. The full regular-season and broadcast schedules will be released at a future date.

• A new system will be used to ensure the parties’ agreed-upon split of basketball-related income (BRI). In the event player compensation were to exceed the players’ designated share in any season, necessary salary reductions beyond the standard 10 percent escrow would be spread across that season and potentially the following two seasons, subject to a maximum salary reduction in any season of 20 percent.

• For the 2020-21 season, the Salary Cap will be $109.140 million and the Tax Level will be $132.627 million. In subsequent seasons of the CBA, the Salary Cap and Tax Level will increase by a minimum of three percent and a maximum of 10 percent over the prior season. Teams’ Tax payments will be reduced in proportion to any BRI decreases.

• Free agent negotiations will begin on November 20 at 6 p.m. ET, with signings starting at 12:01 p.m. ET on November 22.


THIS DAY IN THE NBA

November 9, 1946 George Mikan made his professional basketball debut for the Chicago American Gears in a 66-61 loss at the Oshkosh All-Stars in a National Basketball League game.

November 9, 1975 Mendy Rudolph ended his 23-year career as a referee in the NBA, in which he officiated more games (2,113) than any man in league history at the time. Earl Strom later broke Rudolph’s record and officiated over 2,400 games in his 30-year career.

November 9, 1983 David Stern was named to succeed Larry O’Brien, who resigned after 8½ years, as NBA Commissioner. Stern officially took over on February 1, 1984.

November 9, 1989 The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Seattle SuperSonics 155-154 in five overtime periods, matching the second-longest game in NBA history (Syracuse-Anderson on November 24, 1949). The Bucks-Sonics game was the longest game since the advent of the 24-second shot clock in 1954. Seattle’s Dale Ellis set an NBA record by playing 69 of the 73 minutes.

November 9, 1993 Minnesota’s Micheal Williams had his record-setting NBA consecutive free throw streak end at 97 in a game at San Antonio, when he misfired on a second-quarter attempt. Williams’ mark of 97 eclipsed Calvin Murphy’s previous consecutive free throw record of 78, set during the 1980-81 season. Denver’s Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf moved into second place on the all-time consecutive FT streak list with 81, with his streak ending on November 16, 1993 against San Antonio.

November 9, 1995 The Chicago Bulls defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-88, to earn the first of an NBA-record 33 road victories in one season.

November 9, 1997 New York's Buck Williams played in his 1,270th game, tying him with John Havlicek for fifth on the all-time list.
