MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - NBA Commissioner Adam Silver targets July 31 as the date for a return to the court.

The report is the result of a conference call Friday with the league's board of governors.

The NBA has been on hiatus since March 11 due to COVID-19.

A survey of gm’s shows, of the four potential options for a return to play, 16 of the 30 teams favor going straight to the playoffs.

Twenty votes are needed to make it happen.

The Memphis Grizzlies would be included in a 16-team playoff format.
