UPDATE (6/28): It’s official. Per an ESPN release, Woj’s first gig with the network will be an appearance on the Scott Van Pelt edition of SportsCenter and then jumping over to the NBA Free Agency Special with Rachel Nichols.
Woj isn’t exactly getting time to unpack his things and get rolling, but it’s a heck of a way to make an entrance.
Per the release:
“I have a determination to cover this sport with the same passion as fans have in following it,” Wojnarowski said. “ESPN’s commitment to gathering, breaking and covering NBA news – and its unparalleled combination of media to share those stories with a global audience – makes for an exciting opportunity to do that. There’s a lot of work to be done and I’m eager to get started.”
Also in the release was the news that Bobby Marks would be joining ESPN too.
