What do we need to know about the NBA‘s new in-season tournament? The new tourney, which will take place as part of the league’s regular season save for the title and consolation games to be played in Las Vegas, Nevada, does not guarantee a playoff spot nor confer anything of value in terms of winning a title — though it does have cash prizes for the winning team and the runner up ball club.

This has caused many to speculate as to whether the tournament is a positive change for the sport, particularly given the seeming lack of purpose and meaningful impact on the season or playoffs.
