  • Jay Williams, Paul Pierce and Jalen Rose join Maria Taylor for a deep dive into the NBA's 22-team restart plan to the 2019-20 season.

    Next (4:41), it's a discussion of which bottom-six team (Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Washington Wizards) might play spoiler.
