Anthony Tolliver has an idea.
“Maybe we should have a pool of players that aren’t on any given team, free agents that are in the bubble with us and if need be teams can pull from,” the Grizzlies forward said in a Zoom call with the media on Friday morning.
“I think that would be a safety precaution from a keeping-the-game-going (perspective). That way, if a team has a (coronavirus) outbreak, they can still keep a good lineup out there. I don’t know if that will happen, but it might be an idea we should explore.”
Tolliver isn’t just a random player brainstorming as 21 of 22 NBA teams – the Toronto Raptors are already there – prepare to arrive at a Walt Disney World campus in Orlando next week to resume the 2019-2020 NBA season.
