Following the same format as the previous two seasons, the NBA G League will crown two champions at separate points this year to complement the fluidity of rosters and fluctuation of players during the season. The NBA G League season will consist of two parts: a 16-game Showcase Cup to begin the season, culminating in an eight-team tournament held in December; and a 34-game regular season in advance of the traditional NBA G League Playoffs.
