DraftKings seals NBA partnership
Sportsbook and daily fantasy sports operator DraftKings has agreed to a partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) that will make the company an “authorized sports betting operator” of the league.
DraftKings will be the NBA’s second authorized sports betting operator, following William Hill, which agreed a similar deal with the league in October.
As part of the multi-year agreement, DraftKings will have access to official NBA data, as well as league branding, which it may now display on its mobile app and at retail sportsbooks.
In addition, the NBA and DraftKings will work together in order to protect the integrity of NBA games.
