Magic strike a deal with Disney while Timberwolves announce deal with Fitbit
From hot takes on Kristaps Porzingis to Jimmy Butler trade rumors, the NBA had Twitter on fire during the morning hours.
Not to be out done by the player news, the Orland Magic and Minnesota Timberwolves announced the addition of jersey patches.
The Magic will now see Disney’s logo placed on the upper left side of their jersey while the Timberwolves will see the logo of Fitbit emblazon their jersey in the same spot.
“With Orlando as our hometown, Magic has always been a key strand of our DNA,” Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins said in a statement. “This expanded agreement with Disney brings our story full circle and represents the coming together of two dynamic organizations that have become synonymous with Orlando.”
According to Darren Rovell, the Magic will have a new Disney-branded special seating and hospitality area and also sell annual passes to Walt Disney World for the first time.
The Timberwolves and the Magic become the 7th and 8th NBA teams to have jersey patch deals signed for the 2017–2018 season. The Sixers, Nets, Celtics, Kings, Cavs and Jazz are the other 6 teams to have locked down deals.
