Update On The Adrian Wojnarowski To ESPN Story

Adrian Wojnarowski appearing on ESPN.


An update on the Yahoo! Sports NBA insider to ESPN story.

ESPN is hiring the best NBA reporter on the planet.

Recode reported earlier today that Yahoo! Sports' NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski and his The Vertical team will be joining ESPN sometime this summer.

It had been reported that Woj and his team would join ESPN before the NBA Draft, but that doesn't appear to be true.

USA TODAY has an update on the moving date.

Apparently, Woj and his team will join ESPN after the NBA Draft, but before free agency starts.

From their report:

Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has finalized a deal with ESPN and will begin working for the company by the start of NBA free agency on July 1, a person with knowledge of the deal who is not authorized to speak publicly confirmed to USA TODAY Sports.

This will almost certainly be the biggest media move of the year.
