The WNBA is closing in on a plan for return that includes possible sites in both Las Vegas and Florida, AP’s Doug Feinberg reports.
“Though the league is far from announcing an official plan to launch its delayed — and highly-anticipated — 2020 slate, multiple sources have reported that the WNBA’s leadership is actively considering an option to place its players under sequestration in a specific host location this summer,” Feinberg reports.
