NBA lottery to take place on August 25th with draft to follow on October 15th

The NBA previously postponed both the lottery and draft due to the suspension of play. Based on the re-start date of July 31st, the August 25th lottery drawing will be taking place right or shortly after the final regular season games and/or play in tournament. The October 15th draft means the NBA plans to wrap up the Finals by early October. There won't be much of an off-season, as you'll have the draft on October 15th and then free agency for the rest of October. The plan is to start training camps for the 2020-21 season around November 10th.
