The NBA is partnering with Steve Stoute's UnitedMasters, a music startup that allows artists to license their own music and make it available to businesses.
The NBA plans to use up-and-coming music artists across NBA digital platforms and its social community of 1.5 billion, including NBA.com and the NBA App, as well as league and team social media accounts.
Artists and songs will be tagged or mentioned in select NBA highlight videos, along with a link back to the song directly so viewers and fans can follow the artist and learn more about their work.
