The NBA has announced the phrase Black Lives Matter will be displayed prominently when season resumes.

As part of its ongoing efforts to address racial inequality, the NBA and the players union have agreed to have “Black Lives Matter” painted on the courts inside both sidelines of the venues at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex when it resumes the 2019-20 season on July 30, a person familiar with the details told USA TODAY Sports.

That person was granted anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about internal matters publicly. The person added the slogans will be painted on the side of the court in front of the scorer's table and on the other side of the court in front of the broadcast booth.

The NBA and the NBPA had announced last week that it would pursue various initiatives involving racial equality amid ongoing protests more than a month following a string of incidents involving law enforcement killing Black people, including George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, and Elijah McClain.
