According to ESPN's Jackie MacMullan, the NBA is moving toward creating a 'second bubble’ in Chicago for the eight non-playoff teams that will not be participating in the NBA restart in Orlando. (Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)
The details of the second bubble have yet to be finalized but it appears this will be an alternative for the eight teams to be able to hold mini-camps, practices, and potentially scrimmage against each other to prepare for next season. Team officials from 7 out of the 8 teams were present on the call with the league office on Thursday and there is still a considerable amount of hurdles to overcome in terms of safety, timing, and which players would be participating. If all goes as planned, the NBA expects the second bubble to kick-off in September.
