Adam Silver held a conference call with general managers on Thursday to review the results of a survey delivered to teams last week regarding potential formats to resume the 19-20 season.
“There was zero commitment to any one plan,” a general manager told The Ringer over the phone. “But it was a call to gather more information.”
Half of the NBA's general managers voted to go straight to the playoffs and cancel the remainder of there regular season, while just over half of GMs voted to reseed the playoffs 1 to 16 without factoring in conference.
About 75 percent of teams voted in favor of a play-in tournament, sources said, while 25 percent of teams voted in favor of the group stage.
“Adam isn’t taking the results seriously,” a team executive told The Ringer earlier in the week. “Every team is obviously gonna vote for what’s best for them.”
