Report: NBA considering playing rest of season in Las Vegas


The NBA is considering playing the remainder of its season at a Las Vegas casino property according to ESPN.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst wrote Friday: “Various ideas have been floated by players and executives. One is to consider using a sprawling casino property in Las Vegas, where everything could be held under one roof.” 

The NBA already plays its Summer League in Las Vegas, which usually begins in early July. 

A separate report from CNBC says that the league may play its postseason in Las Vegas. 

CNBC’s Jabari Young reported Friday: “The tournament and NBA Finals would be held in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion, where the league hosts its annual Summer League events.” 

Either a casino property or UNLV would provide the NBA with potential housing and other amenities, which is said to be a driving concern according to both reports. 

The league is suspended indefinitely as the US works to contain the coronavirus.
