The NBA has sent out a guideline regarding the pre-draft process, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Monday evening. Teams will be allowed to conduct virtual meetings with prospects ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft. No in-person meetings will be permitted and teams won’t be able to watch any live video of any prospects.

Shams is also reporting that teams will receive up to four hours per prospect in virtual meetings. Teams are prohibited from conducting more than two hours worth of interviews with one prospect in one week.

The NBA Draft is normally held in June following the end of the NBA Finals. For now, the League hasn’t changed the date of the draft and is trying to keep the pre-draft process alive. Usually, we’d get the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago, but that’s didn’t happen due to the coronavirus pandemic. Until the NBA has some clarity on whether the season will resume, it’s hard to tell when the draft will take place.
