Report: Chris Webber, TNT split ahead of NBA playoffs

< Go back

With the NBA playoffs days away, TNT and longtime analyst Chris Webber have reportedly parted ways. 

The New York Post reports that Webber and the network agreed to a split on Thursday. Webber and TNT did not conduct negotiations on a new contract leading up to the split, according to the report. 

Webber had worked as a color commentator and occasional studio analyst at TNT since 2008. He joined the network shortly after the conclusion of his 15-season NBA career. 

Webber was one of the network's lead in-game analysts along with fellow ex-NBA player Reggie Miller, frequently calling games alongside play-by-play commentators Marv Albert and Brian Anderson. The news broke during Thursday's TNT broadcast of a game between the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers called by Albert and Miller.

With a busy slate of playoff basketball scheduled to start May 22, it's not clear who will fill the void left in Webber's reported absence.
