Marc Stein is headed to the New York Times.
NBA insider Marc Stein has announced that he will join the New York Times in time to cover his 25th season.
Stein is best known for his work as one of ESPN's NBA senior writers since 2000 and has been covering the NBA since 1994.
He signed a multi-year contract extension with ESPN in October 2016 before announcing that he had been laid-off by the network in April.

On that same day, Adrian Wojnarowski started his new job as a senior insider for ESPN.
He broke his Twitter silence to announce his new job on Tuesday afternoon:
