Following the suspension of the NBA season for the foreseeable future, one team owner is set to help hourly workers.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, in an appearance on ESPN, brought up arena workers who rely on an hourly wage, stating "we'll put together a program for them," according to Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports.
The media appearance for Cuban came during Wednesday night's Mavericks game against the Denver Nuggets at American Airlines Center. The game had already tipped off prior to the league's suspension of the season.
The league officially made the decision to suspend the ongoing campaign shortly after a contest between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz was postponed due to Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.
A video of Cuban sitting courtside when he received the news that the NBA season would be suspended gained notoriety on Wednesday night as well:
