What is the new NBA schedule for the playoffs, draft, free agency and other key events? As players return to their home markets and decide whether to participate in the NBA restart, teams are narrowing their list of travel personnel to the approved 37 people per team.

With the season set to resume on July 30, here’s a look at the league’s new calendar.
