Adam Silver’s statement regarding Supreme Court’s decision to overturn PASPA

NEW YORK – NBA Commissioner Adam Silver released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn PASPA:

“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court opens the door for states to pass laws legalizing sports betting.  We remain in favor of a federal framework that would provide a uniform approach to sports gambling in states that choose to permit it, but we will remain active in ongoing discussions with state legislatures.  Regardless of the particulars of any future sports betting law, the integrity of our game remains our highest priority.”
