NBA supports betting legalization

The NBA has considered a possibility of creating a legal industry of sports betting in the country and the offered measures.

The National Basketball Association (NBA) has considered a possibility of creating a legal sports betting industry in the United States, having presented a project on regulating the sector.

Last year, the NBA vice-president and the attorney general assistant Dan Spillane announced, that the NBA is planning to lobby the Congress regarding federal changes and rules on betting regardless of the results of the case in New Jersey which are aimed at abolishing the PASPA Law.

"We have studied these issues in detail", Spillane said in his statement. "Our position is that the time has come for another approach that gives sports fans a safe and legal way to participate in sports competitions while protecting the integrity of the main competitions".
