Rockets owner looking forward to playing games ‘later this summer’

Houston Rockets

There has been increasing optimism this week about professional sports returning in the United States, and Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta seems confident that we won’t be without the NBA for much longer.

During an appearance on CNBC Tuesday, Fertitta said players and executives want to resume the season “as long as the experts continue to say things are getting better in America.”

Fertitta indicated that the season could pick back up “later this summer,” which would make sense considering there are reportedly plans in the works for teams to hold a second training camp before playing regular season games again.

The NBA and other leagues will likely have to play games in empty arenas or venues that are nowhere near full capacity, and that could continue to be the case next season as well. However, with infection numbers trending in the right direction across the country, we seem to be inching closer to the return of live sports.
