Hubie Brown and ESPN Discussing Contract Extension

Hubie Brown and ESPN are discussing a contract extension, sources tell Outkick. While it is unclear how close a new deal is to finalization, a source says both sides want it to happen. He signed his last contract extension with ESPN in 2018.

This news is particularly notable as Brown turns 87 years old in September. While he is not in the bubble for this season’s resumption due to the risks associated with his age, as a color commentator on NBA games this past season he still provided sharp analysis and was a welcome presence on basketball broadcasts.

An ESPN spokesperson declined to comment for this story.
