The NBA is set to kick-off their re-start to the 2019-20 season in Orlando in the next few weeks, and these former Wildcats will likely participate!
Sports are coming back! Months after essentially everything has gone on hiatus, the NBA is coming back, and quite a few of our former Wildcats will likely be participating.
For those that have been paying attention, the NBA has been coming up with a plan to re-start the 2019-20 season, however, it’ll just be with 22 teams instead of 30, and all the teams will play a condensed conclusion to the season in Orlando, FL with no fans being in attendance.

I know this is a rather unusual and unprecedented event, but hey, we are in unprecedented times, and things aren’t quite going to be the same moving forward.
However, if your a sports starved fan like me and many others, you’ll just about anything right now.
As it stands, the season will re-start on July 31 with quite a few of our Wildcats participating, and we are excited about the upcoming action.
