Report: Some NBA owners want access to mental health records
All-Stars Kevin Love and DeMar DeRozan raised mental-health awareness around the NBA earlier this year by publicly discussing their past struggles.
However, as a growing number of players follow their example, some NBA owners reportedly hope to acquire mental health records to get a better understanding of their "investments," according to ESPN's Jackie MacMullan.
The National Basketball Players Association wants all mental health treatment to remain confidential. Love agrees, saying confidentiality should be non-negotiable, according to MacMullan.
The NBA hired Dr. William Parham, making him the league's director of mental health and wellness, while commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA head Michele Roberts are reportedly prioritizing a mental health policy.
