Adrian Wojnarowski will begin his tenure with ESPN on July 1st as the NBA offseason begins.

Wojnarowski has long been rumored to be leaving Yahoo! to join ESPN. Wojnarowski is believed to be bringing several members of his staff at The Vertical with him to ESPN, though details are still being worked out.

ESPN laid off a number of NBA reporters in April and May, most notably Marc Stein, Chad Ford, Henry Abbott, Calvin Watkins and Ethan Sherwood Strauss.
