The plan then moved on to the National Basketball Players Association, who today voted to approve the measure to resume their season at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disney World, according to ESPN.

As part of these plans, 22 teams will report to Orlando in early July to begin training, with games set to take place between July 31st through October 12th. The one question that remains unanswered in the Disney community is where the players will be housed during this time.

Various details remain to be negotiated and the acceptance of the scenario would still require that all parties reach agreement on all issues relevant to resuming play.”
