The National Basketball Players Association regional representatives have reportedly sent a text message to players polling them about the return of the 2020 NBA season. 

Sources told ESPN, that replies to a “Yes or No” question about the season’s return would be kept confidential. Adrian Wojnarowski, senior NBA insider for ESPN, said that different agents had different methods of polling NBA players by region. One agent asked an entire team in a group text, “Do you want to try and play this season, yes or no?” Another representative simply said, “Do you want the season to start again?” (RELATED: Sean Doolittle Goes Off On Twitter About Coronavirus And MLB)

A conference call between NBA commissioner Adam Silver,  NBPA executive director Michele Roberts and rank-and-file players last Friday discussed the topics of the NBA resuming its season, according to ESPN. The NBA suspended play on March 11th due to coronavirus concerns.
