There won’t be any labor strife regarding NBA officials for several years. The NBA and the National Basketball Referees Association announced that they have entered into a new collective bargaining agreement that covers the next seven seasons.
That CBA runs through the 2028/29 season. The contract addressed salary, travel, pension and marketing issue rights and was ratified by the overwhelming majority of the NBA referees, the NBRA announced (hat tip to Andrew Lopez of ESPN).
We have more from around the basketball world:
- Former NBA guard Aaron Harrison has signed in Slovenia with KK Cedevita Olimpija Ljubljana, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors tweets. Harrison played 38 games with the Hornets and Mavericks from 2015-18. He played in Turkey last season.
- FIBA officially announced that disciplinary proceedings have been opened for the alleged attack on Sixers wing and Turkish national team member Furkan Korkmaz by Georgia players, including the Pacers’ Goga Bitadze, after Korkmaz was ejected from a EuroBasket contest, Eurohoops.net relays. Both sides agree that an incident happened and FIBA clarifies that they have the security camera footage from that day. What remains unclear is what kind of sanctions can be imposed, Eurohoops adds, as FIBA uses the wording “applicable disciplinary measures.”
- Hapoel Tel Aviv has elected to retain Jaylen Hoard for the rest of he 2022/23 season, the team announced. Hoard joined the club on a partially guaranteed deal and now will get a full guarantee. After going undrafted out of Wake Forest in 2019, the 6’8″, French-born swingman joined the Trail Blazers on a two-way deal for the 2019/20 season. He then spent the subsequent two NBA seasons bouncing between the Thunder and their NBAGL affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue.

Poland struggling mightily to get anything going offensively vs France’s pressure defense in this 1st semifinal game from Berlin. Terry Tarpey (French Alex Caruso), Albicy (French Pat Beverley) & Rudy Gobert (Stifle Tower himself) making life extremely hard for the Poles so far. 34-18 is the halftime score. Hard to imagine Poland making this a game in the 2nd half tbh
This thing is a certified beat down at this point. Fournier’s lay gives France a 22pt lead w/ 5:30 left in the 3rd. Poland was able to get in their sets & get any shot they wanted vs Slovenia. France plays much better defense tho & Poland has yet to adjust.
bro no one is interested just watch the games yourself don’t tell us about them.
41pt spanking sends France to the Final & Poland limping to the bronze medal game. Too much size, athleticism, talent & experience for the French. Poland gotta regroup by Sunday bc they’re gonna be a huge underdog again. Can’t wait for this next game tho (Spain @ Germany)
