NBA 2023-2024 League Schedule
CONFIRMED CHANGES TO THE NBA SCHEDULE
- There has been talk of holding a tournament throughout the season for quite some time, and finally it will actually happen. All 30 teams will participate in the new, 67-game league starting in the 2023-24 season. A team’s record in the regular season includes tournament victories and losses.
- “The NBA Cup” will be awarded to the tournament’s victor. In addition, if a team reaches the semifinals, its players will receive $100,000, if they lose in the finals, they will receive $100,000, and if they lose in the quarterfinals, they will receive $50,000. An outstanding performer award and an all-tournament squad will also be given out.
- After a round of group play with each team playing each other once, the top eight teams advance to a single-elimination bracket. In 2022-23, the teams in each conference will be seeded into one of three random groups of five depending on their regular-season performance.
- The NBA will adjust its regular season scheduling formula so that just 80 games per team are revealed during the offseason. The first two games of the in-season tournament would be added to the total number of scheduled games for the season. The championship game would then be the 83rd and final game of the season. Additional conclusion games against each other would be scheduled for teams that did not qualify for the in-season tournament or were ousted in the quarterfinals in the same conference (if possible) and round to reach 82 games.
