Report: Multiple NBA Teams Asking If Players Can Report Directly to Training Camp Sites

A number of NBA teams that play in areas where government COVID-19 restrictions remain stringent are asking the league whether their players can bypass returns to home markets and report directly to the NBA's proposed campus environment, if as increasingly expected, play resumes in July, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Per ESPN, teams are looking to avoid having to quarantine majorities of their rosters twice—once upon a move back to home and again at the league's potential resumption site.

Earlier this week, The Athletic's Shams Charania and Sam Amick reported that Orlando has emerged as the frontrunner to host the 2020 NBA postseason.
