NBA Severs Ties With Spalding In Favor of Wilson As Official Basketball Maker

Spalding will no longer be the official basketball of the NBA. The association is making a trade in favor of Wilson, who will begin working with the league for the 2021-22 season as reported by Yahoo! Sports.

The NBA’s partnership with Spalding lasted 30-years but sources state that the split between the two was mutual. Wilson will provide basketballs for not only the NBA, but leagues such as the WNBA, NBA G League, NBA 2K League and Basketball Africa League.

The NCAA currently enlists Wilson as the official maker of its basketballs as well.
