A Prominent NBA Analyst Is Reportedly Leaving ESPN

ESPN is reportedly set to lose a prominent NBA analyst.

According to a report from Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, former NBA coach Stan Van Gundy is heading to Turner Sports.

In recent seasons, Turner ran with a three-man booth. It was comprised of former NBA players Chris Webber and Reggie Miller along with Marv Albert.

Marchand suggested one of Miller or Webber could make way for the former NBA coach.

Here’s more from the report:

Turner Sports is revamping its NBA coverage and is on the verge of hiring Stan Van Gundy away from ESPN to be a prominent game analyst, The Post has learned.

Van Gundy’s addition could have long-term implications for Turner’s top games. For its marquee event, the conference finals, Turner typically goes with a three-man booth.

Van Gundy spent the majority of his time at ESPN appearing on studio shows and was a regular on the Dan Le Batard Show.

Now it looks like he’s headed for the booth. His brother, Jeff Van Gundy, is a veteran in-game analyst for ABC and ESPN.

Turner also reportedly added former NBA star Steve Nash to its NBA coverage as well.
