The NBA will allow teams located in cities where social distancing rules have been loosened to open their practice facilities as early as May 8.

With California looking at June 1 as the earliest possible date to get into phase 1 of reopening, don’t expect the Kings to be playing at the Golden 1 Center anytime soon.
