In less than 3 weeks, we should see more clearly about the NBA season, since Adam Silver announced a decision by mid-June. We already know that if it resumes the matches will be played at one, see two places, but as The Ringer confirms, the NBA preferred that there be only one site.
We talk a lot about Las Vegas and Orlando, which would be the favorites, but these are not the only places studied by the NBA. It is rumored that the league would not rule out Toronto, and The Ringer tells us that the city of Houston would be another option the NBA would explore. In downtown Houston there is the Toyota Center, the Rockets hall, but also the George R. Brown Convention Center, which could also host meetings.
However, as The Athlteic reports, Orlando (and Walt Disney World Resort) would be the big favorite to host this bubble.
The NBA has Orlando / Disney World as a clear frontrunner for return-to-play site for resuming 2019-20 season, sources tell me and @sam_amick. Orlando has gained significant seriousness among other cites such as Las Vegas.
