NBL Free Agency pushed back to July 15
NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said given the later than normal start to the 2020-21 Hungry Jack's NBL Season, the NBL and the ABPA have agreed for the free agency period to now begin on Wednesday July 15.
Loeliger said: "This will allow players more time to prepare for free agency as they consider their futures. It will also allow extra time for Clubs, including The Hawks who have transitioned to new owners over the past week and are currently finalising coaching and staffing arrangements.
“With the current uncertainty around other basketball leagues, we are confident the NBL will remain a highly attractive option for players from both Australia and New Zealand as well as around the world. The NBL is one of the best leagues in the world outside of the NBA and Australia and New Zealand will be among the safest places in the world to play."
