The CBA season plans to delay its season re-start until July, though no final decision has been made.

The Chinese Basketball Association initially planned to resume action in May following the coronavirus outbreak that halted sports action, though the league could end up returning on July 1, according to league sources.

CBA officials held a teleconference on Tuesday to address when the 2019-20 season can resume or be ultimately canceled, though there was no final decision. The future of the season will be decided after a CBA investors’ meeting on April 20.

Meanwhile, the members of the Board of Directors of CBA will get a salary cut between 15% and 30% depending on their wages. Wang Dawei, the CEO, will take a 35% pay cut. Yao Ming, the president of the Chinese Basketball Federation and also of the CBA, takes no salary from the association.

Because the league has been suspended since January, China was considered the first league that can get back into action and the model according to which all other league tried to predict when they will be able to resume activity.

That’s why this turn of events can’t be considered a good sign for everyone.
