While the rest of the league prepares to start the season, the Charlotte Hornets may also receive a chance to play in some scrimmages.

Over the past week, the league has begun to restart with some scrimmages. While the league is going to restart soon, the Charlotte Hornets may also be getting the chance to scrimmage some teams in the coming months.

According to reports, the NBA has announced that it has made progress in possibly doing practices and scrimmages for the eight non-bubble teams. Because of the Hornets’ record, they were not invited to finish the season in Orlando.

Moreover, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reported that the current proposal would allow a week of practices at a team’s home facility followed by two weeks of workouts and possibly some scrimmages in hub cities.

As of now, this proposal still needs the plan of the league and the NBA Player Association. In June, a similar idea was discussed, which called for teams possibly getting to start this second bubble in September.

Coach James Borrego understands the necessity of allowing the non-bubble teams to play. Borrego told the media that the non-bubble are at a significant competitive disadvantage heading toward next season if no plan is approved.

A plan for the second bubble could be expected sometime next week. However, it’s unclear when it will begin, as the NBA is set to prepare for the NBA Draft in October.

The Charlotte Hornets have not played a game since March 11th, and the team should be able to retain most of their young players for the possible scrimmages they may play in. Most of the players are ready to play, so it will be interesting to see this possible plan approved.
