Remember that NBA move? Plus, Florida's coronavirus spike

Remember that NBA move? Plus, Florida's coronavirus spike

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - June 23, 2020 - 1:07:28

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina open by going back to review some of the NBA's minor transactions from February and March before the shutdown. Consider this "Who he play for?" Open Floor style. Who signed Reggie Jackson? Michael Kidd-Gilchrist? Joakim Noah? Jeff Green? Markieff Morris? They debate whether any of those moves will be viewed in a new light given the NBA's Orlando bubble plan and possible player withdrawals. From there, they pivot to questions from the Open Floor Globe. How concerned should the NBA be about Florida's spike in coronavirus cases? Does the NBA have enough schedule flexibility to handle a wider outbreak in Orlando or would a forfeit be in order? Would the NBA consider signing up its players for vaccine trials? Is it time to bust myths like "the team with the best player always wins the series"?
