Let’s start this review of Offseason Power Rankings with a few statements of fact.
• The 2020 NBA Draft has not taken place yet, though it is scheduled for November 18.
• Free agency has not yet started, nor is there a date for when the signing period might take place.
• The NBA and the Players Association last week agreed, once again, to push the deadline for potentially terminating the current collective bargaining agreement as the two parties work through a myriad of issues brought on by COVID-19.
• How the league is going to deal with a precipitous drop in Basketball Related Income and the subsequent effect on the salary cap is still to be determined.
