Adam Silver: NBA mulling charity game amid coronavirus break

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Wednesday night in an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols that the league has discussed potentially hosting a charity game or another one-off fundraising event involving medically cleared players to try and entertain fans during the league’s hiatus. 

“Just because people are stuck at home and they need a diversion and they need to be entertained,” Silver said. “…To the extent we were the first to shut our league down. To what extent can we be a first mover to restart our economy.”
