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.
