More details about the NBA’s first in-season tournament for the 2023-24 season were announced on ESPN Saturday night.

The tournament will be divided into six pools of five teams each, and the pools will consist of teams from the same conference, but not necessarily the same division. Teams play four group matches, each meeting once against each team in their pool. Winners qualify for a single elimination stage.

Each team has an initial 80 regular-season games on the schedule, with two more games added for those who do not qualify for the playoffs in the tournament. The two teams battling for the championship will play 83 games combined in the regular season. In addition, the statistics of the games, with the exception of the championship game, are included in the regular season results.

The tournament begins on November 3rd, with the championship game on December 9th. The Final Four will be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada in early December, ESPN reports previously reported.

Players who are part of the championship team will receive a bonus of $500,000 and the team will win the new NBA Cup.
