With the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the abundance of virtual meetings taking place because of it, there was a legitimate reason to wonder how the NBA’s draft process would be effected.
But according to The Athletic‘s Shams Charania, the League will allow teams to conduct in-person meetings—which include a medical evaluation and workout—with 2020 NBA Draft prospects from October 16 to November 16. Each team will have up to two visits per player and no more than 10 visits total.
In addition, all individuals must test negative for the Coronavirus within 72 hours of visits, and prospects are allowed to bring three individuals to their meetings.
These meetings are a stark contrast to the 2020 NBA Draft Combine, where team and league interviews were conducted virtually.
The draft will also be held virtually, and will air on November 18 on ESPN. Don’t miss our aggregate mock for the 2020 NBA Draft pulled from the biggest experts on the subject.
