NBA: Orlando front-runner to host games upon return
The city of Orlando, Florida is looming as a front-runner to host games if the NBA decides to resume its 2020 season.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the development. Orlando and Las Vegas were both considered to be host venues of NBA games.
The NBA has Orlando/Disney World as a clear frontrunner for return-to-play site for resuming 2019-20 season, sources tell me and @sam_amick. Orlando has gained significant seriousness among other cites such as Las Vegas.

It has been reported earlier that the NBA is considering having only one venue for the playoffs instead of the usual home and away games to prevent too much travel.
Las Vegas and Orlando have both hosted the NBA Summer League.
The 2020 NBA season has been suspended since March 2020.
