The controversy surrounding ESPN’s Rachel Nichols continues and the network announced it is removing her from all NBA coverage, and cancelling her show ‘The Jump’

This all stems from a week’s old controversy where she was caught on tape blaming a colleague’s promotion on race-related reasons.Nichols had more than a year remaining on her current contract. She had become a center piece of ESPN’s NBA coverage since her show started in February 2016, which quickly expanded into a popular year-round show.

ESPN also said they would have a new NBA show that will start sometime before the next regular season begins, but so far no further details have been provided. Stay tuned.
