The NBA’s summer basketball series has officially wrapped up and the league announced that it will not run another game in New York City.
The league announced on Friday that it has decided to end its New York summer games, which are scheduled to begin on June 2, 2018.
The NBA said in a statement that “the decision was made in the best interest of our players, fans, and the game as a whole.”
The NBA is expected to announce new dates for summer games later this month.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver said the decision was “not an easy one” but that he believes the series “has become a vital part of the league’s DNA.”
Silver has also said that the league will “continue to invest in the growth and growth of the game and our players in the years ahead.”
NBA commissioner David Stern and the New York Knicks owner James Dolan met Friday afternoon to discuss the decision.
Stern told reporters on Friday afternoon that the team is “not necessarily disappointed” by the decision, but he acknowledged that the NBA had “a lot to do with the outcome.”
“We’re disappointed in that decision, because we believe that it’s a great decision, it’s an important decision, and we believe it’s the right decision,” Stern said.
We will continue to invest, and I think the right thing to do for us is to put the players and the fans first.” “
We are committed to doing that.
We will continue to invest, and I think the right thing to do for us is to put the players and the fans first.”
Stern also said the Knicks are considering a move to the Las Vegas Summer League, a league that runs under a $1.2 billion television contract.
NBA Summer League commissioner Scott Brooks said he and the team are “looking into the possibility of moving forward.”
The league also said it will be “evaluating our future options for Summer League.”
The New York Times reported that the Knicks have made $10 million in payments to the league and $10.5 million to the teams they are playing in this season, and that the teams in question will be able to receive $12 million for each player they sign this summer.
“The NBA has been working closely with the owners of the teams participating in the Summer League for the past two years to determine the best long-term solution to the Summer Program,” the league said in the statement.
“With the support of the owners and partners, the league has been able to provide more than $80 million to support the Summer Programs in both New York and Los Angeles.”
The Times reported Friday that the New Orleans Pelicans, Philadelphia 76ers, Charlotte Hornets, Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves have all signed contracts with the NBA, and ESPN reported on Friday night that the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder have all been signed.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced earlier Friday that he has called an advisory committee to discuss possible ways to improve the Summer Programming in the next few years.
