NBA commissioner says sponsors, marketing on jerseys 'inevitable' Published: April 24, 2014

The NBA will have some serious changes under the regime of new commissioner Adam Silver.

Silver hasn't been in the commissioner's seat a year yet, but he's got an eye on the future. At a meeting with Associated Press Sports Editors on Thursday in New York, Silver said that sponsors and marketing on NBA jerseys in the future is inevitable.

The WNBA currently has sponsors on its team jerseys and the practice has been commonplace overseas in basketball and soccer for years.
