NBA considers playing finals in Las Vegas, report says


League executives and agents spoke with CNBC on a condition of anonymity, saying that the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas could be a prime location for a resumption.


The NBA already has rented the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion from July 10-20 to host the annual Summer League.


Multiple people with connections to the Summer League and Thomas & Mack said the report is conjecture at this point, and that they haven’t yet heard of any plans to play games in Las Vegas or use the arena.


Other events were booked throughout the summer at NBA arenas, though many are postponed in wake of coronavirus and have not yet been rescheduled.


Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban repeatedly has said since the league’s shutdown that when the NBA returns to play it likely would be without fans — a pro basketball anomaly in which Las Vegas has experience.


The NBA has contested its annual G League Winter Showcase in Las Vegas the last two years, holding games without fans at Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
