Silver, Macron meet to discuss goals with NBA back in Paris

PARIS (AP) — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and French President Emmanuel Macron met this week in Paris to talk about ways they can help one another grow the game in France and beyond. The meeting comes with good timing given that French star Victor Wembanyama is about to enter the NBA and the Paris Olympics are about 18 months away. Silver also said the NBA wants to play in Paris again next year. And before that happens, the league is still working with players on a new labor deal. There’s also plans coming together to celebrate LeBron James becoming the NBA scoring leader, which could happen in the coming weeks.
