(CBS SPORTS) – There is no end in sight for the NBA season’s current hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone for good. The league is “very determined to have a champion,” according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

While a single-elimination tournament is likely off the table, according to Berman, the idea of three-game series throughout a truncated postseason is in play. Seeding, assuming the postseason does eventually start, probably wouldn’t change much, as the idea of finishing the regular season is “barely an option” at this point.

Instead, the league would like to ensure teams reach 70 games — a key marker in local broadcasting deals, though that is not a priority at the expense of the postseason.
