NBA negotiates scenarios for professional salary cuts

New York – Negotiations have started in the NBA about the financial consequences of the corona crisis for players.

According to information from the American TV broadcaster ESPN, every game in the main round that can no longer be played due to the pandemic would cost basketball players from the world’s strongest league about one percent of their annual income. The main aim of the negotiations is to clarify how players, starting with the wage round in mid-April, can be paid less. It is to be avoided that the professionals will continue to be paid in full and that the NBA will have to return money in the end.

According to ESPN, the NBA collective bargaining agreement with the NBPA player union already stipulates that players should forego a salary if games cannot be played due to force majeure. A pandemic falls into this category. The NBA has been paused because of the coronavirus since March 11.
