The Cleveland Cavaliers were one of the eight teams left out of the NBA’s bubble format, but it looks like they may have a chance to play again this season after all.
The Cavs reportedly were livid when they were not included in the 22-team restart because of the effect it would have on the development of their young core.
While Cleveland has been a pro-second bubble team, the New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors reportedly have both been against the idea.
Cleveland finished the 2019-20 season at the bottom of the Eastern Conference with a 19-46 record.
