NBA postpones training camp, cancels first week of preseason

The NBA has announced that is has postponed training camp indefinitely and canceled 43 preseason games because of the lack of a new collective bargaining agreement with the players.

Training camps were scheduled to open on Oct. 3.

In addition, the league canceled all preseason games scheduled from Oct. 9 through 15. That would still leave the Sixers with four preseason games. The team has deleted its previously scheduled games from its website soon after the announcement was made.

“We have regretfully reached the point on the calendar where we are not able to open training camps on time and need to cancel the first week of preseason games,” said NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver. “We will make further decisions as warranted.”
