Bucks co-owner believes season could resume in late summer

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry said Thursday he believes the NBA season will eventually restart, but cautioned it could be in July or August.

"If the goal is you wanna have a season, let's get things opened, let's get people to start getting back in shape, and then we'll figure it out come July or August in figuring it out and finishing the season without fans. Because what's clear is that people wanna see sports."

The Bucks have the best record in the NBA and have a strong chance at winning the championship, should the season resume.

Lasry said the desire for sports among fans is reflected in record viewership of the NFL Draft, as well as ESPN's documentary on Michael Jordan's last season with the Chicago Bulls.
