Teams Viewing July 1 As Deadline For Players To Opt Out Of NBA Campus

When the NBA announced its plans to resume the season in Orlando, one of the caveats was that players were not required to go. June 24 was announced as the date that players needed to notify their team of that choice. However, Adrian Wojnarowski of (Twitter link) hears that teams view Wednesday as a soft target date for the players’ decisions.

Franchises are treating July 1 as a deadline, per Woj. NBA teams are required to submit their roster of eligible players to the league by then.

Players are technically allowed to opt out of the league’s restart up until the playoffs, ESPN’s Bobby Marks explains on Twitter. Teams are allowed to replace the excused player with a substitute, though if that’s done after the teams arrive in Orlando, the substitute would have to quarantine for 10 days upon traveling to Florida.

Davis Bertans and Trevor Ariza are the only players whose decisions to skip the NBA’s return have been reported so far.
