Report: NBA teams at restart to scrimmage against unlikely playoff opponents
We know the NBA schedule for the restart, beginning July 30.
What we don’t know is what the schedule is for the pre-seeding games scrimmages. However, now we have a clue of what will look like courtesy Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
NBA teams in Orlando will scrimmage against a team in opposite conference or an unlikely first-round playoff opponent in same conference, league tells teams in a memo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 4, 2020
This is the logical way to do it. We’re already going to have the Lakers vs. Clippers on opening night with Frank Vogel and Doc Rivers making sure not to tip their hands for the looming showdown, followed by plenty more games like that. We don’t need more of that in the preseason.
Each team will play three scrimmages before the seeding games start. The schedule for the scrimmages is expected to be released soon.
