NBA General Managers Surveyed on Playoff Format

Over half of the NBA's general managers are in favor of going directly to the playoffs when the season restarts, according to a survey taken by the league with the results reported by The Athletic.

Fifty-three percent of GMs polled would prefer going straight to a playoff format, with only 27 percent in favor of resuming an abbreviated season with a play-in period.

An overwhelming 83 percent voted for a playoff system with 20 or more teams, four more than the current format, and the majority of GMs also would like to have the season completed by Oct. 1.

The Board of Governors met on Friday but were unable to reach a consensus opinion on how many teams should be back on the floor when the league resumes. Commissioner Adam Silver expects games to resume by the end of July.
