Charge & NBA G League Statements on 2019-20 Season Cancellation

Official Release | June 4, 2020

NBA G LEAGUE STATEMENT: NBA G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim today announced that the remainder of the 2019-20 NBA G League season, which was suspended March 12, has been canceled. The NBA G League’s regular season was scheduled to conclude on March 28.

“While canceling the remainder of our season weighs heavily on us, we recognize that it is the most appropriate action to take for our league,” said Abdur-Rahim. “I extend my sincere gratitude to NBA G League players and coaches for giving their all to their teams and fans this season. And to our fans, I thank you and look forward to resuming play for the 2020-21 season.”

In the coming weeks, the NBA G League will announce end-of-season award winners, including the Most Valuable Player, Dennis Johnson Coach of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

CANTON CHARGE STATEMENT: We understand that the decision to cancel the remainder of the NBA G League season was extremely complex and a very difficult one to make. We will be left to wonder what could have been, as we were on track for one of the most successful seasons in Canton Charge history. We will channel our energy and focus into listening to the needs of our Stark County community and helping impact positive change in any way that we can.  We look forward to the opportunity to return to the court and play for Charge Nation again when the 2020-21 NBA G League Season begins.
