5 day turn around on SLC40 would be a very impressive achievement.

Precisely. We now think that we know that Static Fire for the SAOCOM 1B launch will occur 5 days before launch.
Ben Cooper currently has the same launch listed for late July or early August.

My hypothesis: If either the Starlink et al. payloads or the SAOCOM 1B et al. payloads are ready, then SpaceX would proceed with the launch campaign for that one launch before the Atlas V mission on July 30.  The other Falcon 9 launch would wait until afterwards.

We now have a launch date and time for the Starlink launch.

I think there's not enough time to have SAOCOM 1B launch before the 29th, as its Static Fire should precede launch by 5 days, and that hasn't happened as of this posting.

My updated hypothesized mini-schedule:
Scheduled:
Date - Satellite(s) - Rocket - Launch Site - Time (UTC)

2020
NET Late  July 29  - Starlink flight 10 (x57) [v1.0 L9], SXRS-1: BlackSky Global 5, BlackSky Global 6 - Falcon 9-090 (B1051.5 S) - Kennedy LC-39A - 08:26
July 30 - Mars Perseverance rover (MSL-2), Ingenuity (MHS), MMO, CubeSats - Atlas V 541 (AV-088) - Canaveral SLC-41 - 11:50-13:50
NET Late July 25   August - SAOCOM-1B, Capella 2 (Sequoia), GNOMES-1 - Falcon 9-091 (L) - Canaveral SLC-40 - 23:19

This mission is now NET July 31 according to Ben Cooper. Maybe due to the reasons discussed above?

Will they have enough boosters for 4 launches in August ?

SAOCOM 1B is Pushed to late August for two reasons LV isn't yet ready and the range conflict, they're maybe Clearing it for NROL-44 & Possible perseverance delays, i expect the August Starlink Launch to be pushed also

They should have four boosters in August.  Whether they can actually launch that many depends on payload and range availability.  Haven't heard anything about SXM-7, don't know if it's been delivered or incurred COVID delays like most other payloads.

Perseverance and NROL-44 wouldn't prevent other launches for the entire month of August.

Could DM-2 landing operations possibly interfere with the launch if they need to use August 2nd?

The launch would be over 11 hours before splashdown, so I don't think it would be a problem.

Port Canaveral update:
Tug Finn Falgout, most likely with OCISLY in tow, has left port and is heading towards the Starlink landing zone. In other news, Pegasus is nearing port and local river tugs Termite and American are awaiting arrival. #SpaceXFleet #Pegasus
