The NBA has officially released the schedule for the 2017-18 season.
For the first time in NBA history, no team will be going through the gauntlet of playing four games in five nights, and there will also be a 12 percent reduction in back-to-back sets, which will hopefully result in fewer injuries and random rest days around the league. The NBA also protected their nationally televised games by ensuring that no team will be on a back-to-back set or be going through a five games in seven nights scenario. Aug 14 - 6:28 PM

Date:

The Christmas Day schedule includes the 76ers at Knicks, Cavaliers at Warriors, Wizards at Celtics, Rockets at Thunder and Wolves at Lakers.

The Knicks still get their national game despite how they are not expected to be very good, but at least we get The Process at noon EST to start this slate. As expected, we get a Finals rematch on Christmas for the third consecutive year, and we get a look at the three teams all making big moves this summer: Rockets, Thunder and Celtics.

NBA owners are expected to approve player-resting rules in September designed to cut back on teams benching healthy players for regular-season games, according to Jeff Zilgitt of USA Today.

The rules are expected to be in place for the 2017-18 season and there will be consequences for teams that don't adhere to those rules. The NBA is doing all they can on their end with an earlier start in the season, no more four games in five nights, no more months with at least 18 games, cutting down on single-game road trips, and dropping the total number of back-to-backs. The new rules are going to be tough to enforce, so it's not likely going to be a stiff penalty for violators.

Adam Silver said that Seattle will be on the "short list" of cities he'll look at if/when the NBA "seriously" considers thinking about expansion.

"I don’t want to put a precise timeline on it, but it’s inevitable at some point we’ll start looking at growth of franchises," said Silver. "That’s always been the case in this league, and Seattle will no doubt be on a short list of cities we’ll look at." In order to the Supersonics to get resurrected as an NBA franchise, they'll first need to find a place in Seattle to build a new arena, which comes with a litany of logistical issues. In other words, this isn't something that will happen anytime soon.

The NBA has moved the trade deadline for the 2017-18 season to February 8.

The league will be moving the deadline to the second Thursday before the All-Star break, thus ending the awkwardness of players having to hear about trade rumors throughout All-Star weekend. This also could be seen as a good thing for fantasy hoops, as it gives players who get traded more time to get acclimated to their new surroundings.

The NBA's projected salary cap for the 2017-18 season has been revised downward from $102 million to roughly $99 million.

The luxury tax threshold is also likely to be lowered from $121 million to $119 million. This is reportedly a result of lower-than-expected playoff revenues, and it could make it harder for some teams to clear space to pursue elite free agents. This may not have a glaring impact on strategies at the trade deadline, but it could throw a wrench into some offseason plans.

Adam Silver said he will "strongly recommend" home-games-only rest and prevent resting "multiple starters on the same night" during next season.

Strongly recommending something may help, but could you imagine the 76ers resting Joel Embiid at home? The NBA does know that back-to-back slates are a factor for injuries and last year we saw more DNP-REST than ever before. Even with the season starting a week earlier, there will still be plenty of back-to-back sets and plenty of players will be resting.

Commissioner Adam Silver said that league is seeking alternative solutions to address the issue of star players resting too frequently.

Unsurprisingly, Silver rejected the notion that the NBA schedule needs to be shortened. "It's not 82 games, it's not the length of the season, it's the time between the games and that there's a direct correlation between fatigue and injury on the part of the players," Silver said. He stated the league would require NBA arenas to free up more dates, which would reduce the number of back-to-back games. Silver also said that he would prefer that stars are rested at home, as opposed to away games.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said he never considered punishing Phil Jackson for Jackson's public comments about Carmelo Anthony.

Back in April, Jackson told reporters that he felt it would be best for both the Knicks and Anthony if Melo would waive his no-trade clause. Michele Roberts, the head of the NBA Player's Union, stated that she felt Jackson should be disciplined for "deliberately trying to shame Melo out of the city." Silver disagreed. "The thing with the league is it’s not reciprocal. Players can’t trade themselves and teams can trade players," Silver said Thursday.

Commissioner Adam Silver said the current NBA age-limit rule is "not working for anyone."

He did say this rule will not change for the upcoming 2017-18 season. "We all agree we need to make a change," Silver said. The NBA's current rule has forced most players to have a one-and-done college experience, but most of those student athletes aren't too invested in the non-basketball side of their time at school. The NBA Development League now has a whopping 26 teams and that league has picked up plenty of steam, which may be a factor in what Silver is thinking here.
Jun 1 - 8:14 PM

The NBA and the league's Players Association have reached a "tentative agreement" on a new seven-year Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The deal must be approved by players and team owners, but this is terrific news for anyone who appreciates the NBA. The agreement would forestall a potential lockout and ensure that there's no CBA drama for years to come.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 07:40:00 PM

The NBA and NBPA are reportedly close to coming to terms on a seven-year extension to the CBA.

The agreement will have an opt-out option after Year-6, but it's looking more and more likely that a new CBA deal will be finalized in the coming weeks, meaning there's little fear of a lockout season in 2017.

The NBA and NBPA are close to coming to terms on a new CBA deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Chris Paul said that Wednesday's meeting went "very well," and he's "optimistic" that the league can strike a deal and avoid a lockout season. Most of the major items have reportedly already been agreed upon, with one of those items being the "one-and-done" college draft rule, which will remain in place. Additionally, the Basketball Related Income split between the NBA and NBPA will reportedly remain unchanged in the new CBA deal.

The NBA and NBPA have reportedly made "significant progress" towards a new CBA, and there's "strong optimism" that a new deal can be finalized in the coming weeks.

Both sides have until December 15 to opt out of the current deal that was constructed during the 2011 lockout season, but both sides reportedly believe that a new deal will be struck prior to that date which will eliminate the possibility of another lockout season in 2017. The new CBA will reportedly include "a significantly higher rookie contract scale," as well as "two-way contracts" between the NBA and D-League. All hail Adam Silver.

The NBA has officially released their schedule for the 2016-17 season.

Adam Silver really made an effort to reduce the amount of back-to-back sets, with NBA squads seeing a maximum of 18 back-to-backs, so hopefully that small ease in the scheduling will result in less injuries. Some highlights from the schedule feature Kevin Durant returning to OKC as a villain in a Golden State jersey on February 11, and the Warriors getting a rematch with the Cavs in Cleveland on Christmas Day. The NBA season can't come soon enough.
