Lakers News: Jared Dudley Confident July 31 Target Date For Resumption NBA Season Is ‘Plenty Of Time’ To Prepare

Los Angeles Lakers veteran Jared Dudley has been one of the league’s most important figures during the ongoing hiatus. Dudley is known for his willingness to speak out on issues while remaining open and honest with fans, and that hasn’t changed amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

While the NBA continues to figure out a return-to-play plan, Dudley has communicated via his Twitter account his feelings about what the league is doing. He even shared details of conference calls with Commissioner Adam Silver.

Through all of this, Dudley has maintained the players need – at the very least – four weeks of preparation before games can resume.
