Team guests will be allowed in the Orlando bubble soon.
Per ESPN, the league is requiring players provide proof of “longstanding relationships” with non-family members, according to a memo obtained by ESPN.
The NBA and National Basketball Players Association negotiated terms that preclude players from hosting guests who’d be deemed as wholly casual in nature, including “known by the player only through social media or an intermediary,” according to the memo.
There was significant discussion and planning about how some guests could impact the league’s environment, and that’s reflected in the language of rules that also prohibit those with business relationships, including agents, chefs, trainers and tattoo artists, according to the memo.
Families and guests will be required to quarantine for seven days off-site from the Disney Wide World of Sports in Orlando, or three days in the team’s market prior to take a franchise charter flight to Orlando, and then four more days on the Disney campus, the memo said.
