Report: NBA to increase number of players, coaches allowed at facilities

The NBA will allow up to 10 coaches in facilities starting on Tuesday as players return to ramp-up for the remainder of the season, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski adds that teams can have four players at facilities from June 23-30 then up to eight from July 1-9. After that teams are expected to travel to Orlando, Fla., for the start of training camp.

The NBA regular season is scheduled to return on July 30 at Walt Disney World with 22 teams each playing eight more games to determine seeding for the playoffs.

As Sportsnet’s Michael Grange reported, the Toronto Raptors plan to train in Florida next week despite rising cases of COVID-19 in the state. Members of the Raptors are expected to begin arriving in Naples, Fla., on Sunday and Monday and all players will be required to report for mandatory testing on Tuesday.
