EHCB Executive Director points as UCL, not NBA, as guide for eventual Euroleague restart

Goran Sasic has talked about 3-4 weeks between return to practices and season restart in an interview with NOVA.rs

In an interview with NOVA.rs, Euroleague Head Coaches Board director Goran Sasic has discussed the suspension of the competitions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Clubs, EHCB, and ELPA would need to agree to extend the expiring contracts of June until July for a restart (…) We can’t take the CBA from the NBA and apply it equally in Europe as we are not in the same circumstances, with geographic differences and with different legal applications per country. This is why a reference to the UEFA Champions League is more in value for us that looking to the USA, which is one country under the same law (…) The principle of everyone being on the same physical condition will be the most important topic, if and when competitions will be resumed. We believe that it should be some 3-4 weeks before the competition can resume. But let me make it clear, we will always back the possibility of finishing the season on the court, but we need to do it in a way that guarantees health and safety measures”, Sasic said.
