NBA commissioner Adam Silver is reportedly finalizing a contract extension, with his immediate focus on negotiating new media rights deals.

The next deal is anticipated to involve more partners, possibly including streaming services like Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Apple Plus, in addition to the current ESPN/ABC and TNT Sports.

Speculation suggests that the new agreement might be shorter, possibly lasting around five years, setting the stage for Silver to lead a second round of media rights negotiations before the extension expires.
