The NBA will announce new television agreements on Monday, according to a league press release cited in a report today from Sean Highkin of NBC Sports.

The league's current deal with ESPN/ABC and Turner expires after the 2015-16 season. It's not immediately known what the league will announce on Monday regarding the new agreements, but as Highkin reports, it's expected that the news is simply to announce lucrative extensions with the league's current broadcast partners. 

Sports Business Journal reported in September that ESPN and Turner could be paying somewhere in the ballpark of a combined $2 billion annually for the broadcast rights to the NBA.
