The New York Times` Rich Sandomir gave an update Sunday night on the new agreement. Under the new agreement, ESPN will significantly increase its NBA-focused programming with 750 new hours of NBA content on linear and digital platforms, in order to achieve a significant year-round presence for the league on ESPN; The new deal probably means that the NBA`s salary cap — and player salaries — will soar if the league and the players` association reach a new collective bargaining agreement. Some of the league`s best free agents, including LeBron James, have structured their contracts to give themselves flexibility around the 2016/17 season. The NBA`s annual revenue from the deals will increase from US$930 million to more than $2.6 billion, according to a person familiar with the terms.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the league did not release financial figures. The WNBA has also extended its contract with ESPN until 2025 as part of the new rights agreement. Since 2013, ESPN networks have held rights to the Canadian Football League; The league`s domestic rights are held by The Sports Network, a Canadian sports channel in which ESPN holds a minority stake. This agreement was renewed in 2014 for a five-year period in accordance with TSN`s internal contract, with the provision that at least 17 games will be played in an ESPN linear network per season (mainly ESPN2), including the Grey Cup. Initially, ESPN3 conducted all the games that were not worn online on any of the linear channels, and then ESPN moved those games to ESPN.     Fox Sports and NBC Sports have contracts for all NASCAR events until at least 2024.

On July 23, 2013, NASCAR and NBC Sports Group announced a new 10-year, $4.4 billion contract.    Ten days later, on August 1, 2013, NASCAR and Fox renewed their contracts by paying an additional $1.4 billion to complete NASCAR`s new TV package by the 2024 season.   This is an important agreement for our company and we are pleased to continue our long-standing partnership with the NBA, its fans, owners and players.
