NBA Strikes Sports-Betting Deal with MGM after Supreme Court’s Greenlight

(From The Washington Examiner)

The National Basketball Association struck a deal with MGM Resorts that will allow the casino operator to use its branding on betting products throughout the U.S., following the Supreme Court’s rejection earlier this year of a law that effectively blocked sports gambling.

The partnership is the league’s first with a sports-betting operator and will include joint efforts such as real-time data-sharing to protect the integrity of games involving the NBA and the WNBA, executives from both organizations said. MGM Resorts will be promoted across the NBA’s digital properties, including the NBA app, and the league will be advertised on MGM Resorts’ platforms.
