“Absolutely,” Brogdon, an NBPA vice president, said Thursday in an appearance on ESPN’s The Jump, when asked if he expected the deadline to be pushed back. “The way talks are going, this is a super complicated issue, and there’s a lot to balance. [There’s] a lot of minds working on this collaboratively, on both sides. So it’s going to take some time. I don’t think a few weeks, but I think it will take at least a few more days.”
“I think those are the two options,” Brogdon said. “We’re either going to start MLK Day, which I think a lot of the players are leaning towards, or we’re going to start the 22nd, Christmas time. But the huge difference is revenue. Revenue, and trying to get the season back on track to start in that September-October range. So I think calculations are being done on both sides on how much revenue would be lost for each potential date, and we’ll have to come to some type of agreement and go from there.”
Redick: “Malcolm Brogdon launched a fund while in the bubble. Chris Paul, D-Wade and Melo launched a Social Change Fund in the bubble. The league announced it would be providing $300 million into a fund for the next 30 years to invest in Black communities. There are a lot of things happening. I made a big deal about this on my podcast when I talked to Mark Cuban about Jared Kushner coming out and saying something about LeBron and how he wished these players would focus more on actually solving the solution than complaining. I’m paraphrasing. But the reality is we’re doing things to help solve these problems. Our elected officials are not doing enough. The impetus and onus is on active athletes to help create change. It’s nonsensical. I said this on the podcast: I’m so proud of our league, my peers and what we’re doing and what we stand for.
