Ads Coming To NBA Jerseys?

June 20, 2014 Updated Jun 20, 2014 at 1:15 PM EDT

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) -- It appears that advertising may be coming to NBA uniforms starting next season.

The practice of advertising on uniforms is widespread throughout other major sports, most notably on European soccer teams.

What sparked these talks was a change to the layout of NBA jerseys for the 2014-2015 season, where the NBA logo has been moved to the back of the jerseys. This will leave a space open for ads on the front of the jerseys.

However, at this point it is all speculation and any advertising has not been confirmed.
