It is not a guarantee, though, that all players with expiring contracts will get an extension as Marcial said it is still up to the teams which players they will keep in their payroll.

PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said the board of governors approved the proposition that will give teams the option to extend expiring contracts of players until the end of the year as the league seeks to restart its coronavirus-aborted season.

"The players are lucky. Even if the PBA season resumes or not, they will receive their salaries until December 31," Marcial said in Filipino during the Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum. "When you are not signed, you will become a free agent," Marcial said."The teams will give us a list of the players they extended."

The PBA aims to allow its teams to resume training – no scrimmages – under a closed circuit bubble on July 22. If the return-to-practice plan turns out successful, Marcial said the PBA will ask for approval from the Inter-Agency Task Force to permit teams to finally hold scrimmages.
