ESPN’s daily NBA news show The Jump will do a live late night show on Saturday to mark the start of NBA free agency. The show starts Saturday night at 11:30pm and goes until 1:30 am on the East Coast. The Jump host Rachel Nichols will be joined by ESPN’s NBA insiders Brian Windhorst and Kevin Arnovitz. It will be available on ESPN2 and the ESPN app.
Free agency for the league, of course, opens at midnight on July 1, so viewers can expect the usual flurry of late night news. After the late night special, The Jump staff will continue tracking player movement with a second special airing on Sunday night at 7. Nichols and Windhorst will be joined on that show by ESPN The Magazine’s Ramona Shelburne and NBA insider Amin Elhassan.
