NBA star Kobe Bryant will be inducted into the 2020 class of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, per a Saturday announcement.
The big picture: Bryant’s selection comes nearly 3 months after his death in a helicopter crash. The announcement would normally take place at the NCAA's Final Four weekend, but the tournament was cancelled due to the novel coronavirus.
The WNBA announced Friday it is postponing the start of its training camps and season, previously scheduled to begin on May 15.
The state of play: The postponement of the 2020 Olympics also gives the league flexibility to delay the season since players were slated to take July off to participate in the Tokyo Games. The WNBA, the longest-running professional female sports league, plans to hold a virtual draft April 17, AP reports.
