ESPN NBA Insider Chad Ford Announces He's Been Laid Off

An ESPN sign hanging that's very old

Another ESPNer has been informed he's been laid off.

ESPN's NBA coverage is taking another huge hit. Just hours after top basketball reporter Marc Stein announced he'd been laid off, Chad Ford, NBA Insider, announced the same. Ford, who specialized in reporting for the NBA Draft, dropped the news via Twitter.

Ford had been with the network for 16 years. He added that he'll be working through this year's draft - ending his run on June 30.

Ford promised a "special" final 60 days for his readers.

Ford and Stein are just two huge personalities the network has cut ties with in the past week - with some others being Brett McMurphy, Dana O'Neil, Jay Crawford, Danny Kanell, Ed Werder and Andy Katz. We wish them both the best moving forward.
