Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported that the NBA's contract with Spalding is expiring, and the league has struck a deal with Wilson to manufacture its game balls going forward.

Through the entire 30-year tenure of David Stern as NBA Commissioner and into the Adam Silver era, Spalding has made the official basketball of the NBA.

Beginning in the 2021-22 season, NBA players won't be dribbling Spalding basketballs for the first time in decades. Prior to Spalding, Wilson was the league's original ball supplier for 37 years.

"Our commitment to growing the game of basketball on the global stage is at the heart of Wilson and our new partnership with the NBA", said Kevin Murphy, General Manager, Wilson Basketball. We are proud of our almost four-decade relationship. "And as we start this new chapter in the game, our focus and energy will be on supporting the league and the players, coaches and fans with the most advanced, high-performance game basketballs possible".

Wilson will replace Spalding as the NBA's official game ball beginning with the 21-22 season.

Wilson's Evolution and NCAA balls are very popular at the high school and college level, however, the National Basketball Association and Wilson are teaming up to create a new ball - a genuine leather ball, instead of the composite leather of the Evolution/NCAA - for the league, Haynes reports.

Leather used for the basketballs will continue to come from the same provider, and the new balls will keep the same eight-panel configuration and performance specifications as the ones now used.
