To avoid competitive in-balance, the 20 teams would be broken up into tiers before they moved onto group play. Under this scenario, possible group opponents for the Spurs would include the LA Clippers (Tier 1), Boston (Tier 2), Indiana (Tier 3) and Dallas (Tier 4). What are the incentives for teams currently out of the playoff picture? Buford said weeks ago the Spurs want to return to play under any circumstance that is safe for the players and staff.
