Chris Paul, NBA stars have conference call to discuss eventual NBA resumption”

Yahoo Sports is reporting a number of the league's more popular players agreed, via a private call, to agree to promote the return of the 2019-20 season.

"Chris Paul, the president of the players association, arranged the call that included LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook, sources said", Haynes reported.

"(Executive director) Michele (Roberts) asked for me to reach out and ask the simple confidential question: "'Do you want the season to start again?'" NBPA regional rep Tim McCormick wrote in a group text to players, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The players spoke Monday and were in agreement on a return to the court with proper safety guidelines once the league is allowed to restart, according to Yahoo Sports.

Most players whose teams are out of playoff contention or highly unlikely to fight back into it preferred the league begin with playoffs instead of finishing up the regular season, according to Haynes. "There's a bunch of information that's being gathered right now". So a lot of things at play. "Everything is moving in the [right direction]".

As the specter of pay reductions started to rise at the start of the NBA's hiatus, we had learned that several National Basketball Association players, including many Klutch Sports clients like LeBron James, had clauses in their contract that allowed them to get their yearly contract paid in full before the end of the season. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver comments on how the pandemic may have altered the league's calendar permanently.
