In a move to ensure its financial stability, Spurs Sports & Entertainment will cut staff positions as the NBA works to resume its 2020 season, the San Antonio Business Journal reports.

The downsizing comes nearly five months after the NBA season put its current season on ice due to the coronavirus pandemic. The San Antonio Spurs will compete against 21 other teams when games resume on July 30 in Orlando.

Spurs officials did not disclose how many jobs or which positions they plan to cut.
