(WSCR) NBA owned have put on hold discussions to have small advertisements placed on jerseys.
According to a report, the owners came to this decision during its Board of Governors meeting Thursday.
The league had initially decided to pursue the jersey ads during the summer meetings. The proposed advertisements would have been much smaller than the ones seen on WNBA and European soccer jerseys.
The league is expected to collect revenues of up to $100 million once the advertising begins. Replica uniforms would also include the advertising patches.
