As a result of the agreement, the free agency will begin at 18:00 Eastern Time on Friday 20 November, less than 48 hours after the 18 November draft. After a brief moratorium, signatures are officially authorized from Sunday, November 22 at 12:01 p.m. The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association announced Tuesday that they have agreed on the principle of starting the 2020/21 season on December 22 and adapting specific provisions to the current collective agreement, affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The salary cap between the 1999 and 2005 CBA versions has not changed much. In exchange for approving the controversial minimum age of players, players received a slightly higher percentage of the league`s revenue during the new convention. In addition, the league`s maximum score decreased slightly from the 1999 CBA. Under the 2011 CBA, players received a lower percentage of the league`s revenues. Teams are unlikely to receive formal league numbers until the end of the week, after a final agreement has been formally reached. The current moratorium on league trades is expected to be overturned early next week — just before the NBA draft, which is scheduled for November 18. Late last week, the union voted to provisionally approve the league`s plan to play a 72-game game plan next season starting December 22. At the time, the NBPA Players` Representatives Committee said that some details remained to be negotiated, but they were confident that an agreement would be reached on these remaining issues. According to the revised schedule, the regular season ends in mid-May, with the playoffs ending in July.
This will allow players to participate in next year`s Summer Olympics, which will begin on July 23 and run until August 8. In 2005, players received 57 percent of revenues, and from the new CBA, they receive about 49 to 51% of turnover.  At that time, the next debate on the CBA was set at ten years. or, if necessary, in 2017.  In 2016, the NBA and nba Players Association met to work on a new CBA approved by both parties in December of that year. This last contract started with the 2017/18 season and runs until 2023/24, with a reciprocal opt-out after 2022/23.   If the league and the players` union move forward with the NBA`s December 22 plan, training camps would begin on December 1, so the two sides will have to reach an agreement sooner rather than later.
