NBA to announce new television agreements on Monday
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 press conference to announce the new deals will begin at 10 a.m. EST and will be broadcast on NBATV and on NBA.com.
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.
