Thunder’s Chris Paul discusses NBPA’s talks with league office on salvaging NBA season

USA Today

Usually, Chris Paul knows how to find the answer to any question he has.

That is what happens when you are the president of the National Basketball Players Association. That is what happens when you are an NBA All-Star point guard.

This time, though, Paul does not have any answers. How could he when no one else has them regarding when the novel coronavirus outbreak will stop and when the NBA can resume play?

“It’s really just a ‘wait-and-see’ game and hoping that the coronavirus gets contained,” Paul told USA TODAY Sports. “What we try to do from the union perspective is try to keep guys informed as much as possible and try to prepare for what we can control.”

The Oklahoma City Thunder guard said the NBPA is having “ongoing conversations” with the league office on if, when and how players will get paid during the suspended season, though he declined to share specifics.
