Chris Broussard Rumors
NBA insider Chris Broussard is finalizing a new deal to jump to rival FS1 from ESPN, sources tell Sporting News. The veteran NBA reporter would fill a hole at Fox Sports for an NBA expert to compete with ESPN’s army of NBA insiders/reporters, ranging from Rachel Nichols and Marc Stein to Zach Lowe. The tip-off the new 2016-2017 NBA season is only 11 days away.
The NBA free agent class just became more intriguing with the addition of a new player: ESPN’s Chris Broussard. The NBA insider’s current contract with the network expires in mid-September, said sources with knowledge of his deal. That could make the experienced, versatile Broussard a valuable free agent at at time when the surging NBA has never drawn more media attention.
Chris Broussard: Regarding my Wednesday report: I should have attempted to contact Mark Cuban before reporting what my sources were telling me. I always try to carry myself with honesty and integrity both personally and professionally. I recognize that I tweeted hastily, I’m sorry for it, and I will learn from my mistake.
