NBA To Pick Up TV Rights Talks This Week
Adam Silver discussed the league's upcoming television rights negotiations in his Sunday press conference, saying talks are in place for next week when the Finals transition to Miami.
The current deals with ESPN and TNT run through the 2015-16 season. There have been reports about the NBA adding a nationally televised game on Saturdays.
"We're pleased with our current partners in the Disney Company and Time Warner Turner," Silver said. "We have discussions set for next week in Miami and those discussions are ongoing. It's still my hope that we extend early before we get to the market, but we'll see. We'll see how those discussions go."
