The National Basketball Association and National Basketball Players Association made significant strides towards the structure of next season last week, with the NBPA reps voting in favor of a league proposal to the 2020-21 season on December 22, according to multiple reports.

Among those is the salary cap and luxury tax remaining flat at $109.140 and $132.627 million, respectively. If there is a need to reduce player salaries by more than that 10%, that loss will be spread out over that season, as well as the following two - and players can never have more than 20% of their salary withheld in a single season. Teams' tax payments will be reduced in proportion to any basketball-related income.

The adjustments also finalize a number of other dates.

Christmas is coming early for basketball fans, as the NBA has announced it will begin the 2020-21 season on December 22.

Free agent negotiations will begin on November 20 at 6 p.m. (ET), with signings starting at 12:01 p.m. (ET) on November 22.

The final details on the schedule for the season are still being worked out, though will host the 2020 NBA Draft on Wednesday, November 18, leaving very little time between the end of the draft and the beginning of free agency.

The usual season-start date in October was pushed back because the coronavirus pandemic caused delays to the 2019-20 campaign.

The players and NBPA were concerned over such a quick turnaround from the previous season, but ultimately the prospect of losing such a large amount of money was too much and the league ultimately got what they were hoping for. It's the best way to watch player interviews, exclusive coverage from events, participate in live shows, and more!
