The final cuts for the NBA teams traditionally attract European interest. This year due to the coronavirus pandemic and the adjusted schedule for the 2020-21 NBA Regular Season meets the European competitions approaching their midway mark rather than the usual situation in early October. The involved teams on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean have been managing various unprecedented situations, transfer policies being just one of them.
