The NBA reportedly settled on a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) Saturday, part of which would allow players to invest in and promote sports betting companies.
The NBA does not currently allow players to bet on NBA games or partner with sports betting companies. That is despite the league itself being aligned with FanDuel, DraftKings, and other related entities.
Sports betting has been a tough topic to handle for professional sports leagues. The NBA has not had any major controversy but has been forced to walk a tight line amid the rapid expansion of legal sports betting.
