The league believes that a December 22 start that includes Christmas Day games on television and allows for a 72-game schedule that finishes before the Summer Olympics in mid-July is worth between $500 million and $1 billion in short and long term revenues to the league and players.

A league source told The Sacramento Bee that while players had agreed to the start date for the new season, financial terms and details pertaining to the salary cap still had to be finalized. He started his journalism career at The Bee more than 20 years ago and returned to cover the Sacramento Kings in September 2018.

The CBA is the contract that governs major issues between the league and the players. The season is also expected to conclude before the start of next summer's Tokyo Olympics, meaning National Basketball Association player participation in those games remains possible.

This past season was suspended March 11 due to the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The Los Angeles Lakers captured a record-tying 17th NBA Championship on October 12 with a 106-93 victory over the Miami Heat that sealed the best-of-seven title series 4-2.

When the National Basketball Association returned from its hiatus during the summer, it reconvened in isolation at Walt Disney World's sports complex near Orlando, Florida, which was referred to as "the bubble", to minimize exposure risk to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. The NBA had teams in the bubble for three months.
