The delay and postponement for the recent draft pick put a hold for the rookies of the 2020 season because of COVID-19 that put the world on lockdown. NBA’s Season and Playoffs also got affected and started later in the year, with a threat that could have even stopped basketball for the country.
The rookies that were set for the NBA Draft are seeing a debut for the 2021 Season. According to CBS Sports, the newly drafted rookies would immediately begin training with their respective teams by December 2 and play the ball as early as December 22.
