Players set to return to the court next month as part of the NBA's restart are discussing the best way to push the "Black Lives Matter" movement to the forefront.

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving and Los Angeles Lakers teammates Avery Bradley and Dwight Howard are just three of the voices behind a coalition of players who have expressed concern that playing will take away from their push for social justice reforms in the wake of the death of George Floyd on May 25.

Twenty-two teams are scheduled to resume play on July 30 near Orlando, Florida, and dozens of players joined a conference call Monday to air concerns about playing at all this summer after a call Friday that included around 100.
