For several weeks now, fans can expect the headlines to be all and everything about the transfer window within basketball. This time however, it will be under tighter schedules and timelines. The NBA has already undergone extensions and rearrangements, due to the pandemic, there is no longer a want or a need for any more delays to happen or affect the season ahead.
