According to Chris Haynes, many players are hoping to start next season on January 18 instead of the previously rumored date of December 22.
December 22 always seemed a bit quick, especially considering the need for training camps and a truncated free agency period. If the season did start on January 18 which is MLK Day, free agency could begin around December 1. More details will certainly emerge as the league attempts to navigate the path forward after their general success with the playoff bubble.
