The New Orleans Pelicans and Utah Jazz are reportedly contemplating kneeling during the national anthem during Thursday's season-opening game.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that when NBA games start NBA players will kneel during the national anthem. It’s part of the players’ social justice efforts around the NBA’s restart.

What will that look like? It may start in the first game Thursday night with the Pelicans and Jazz players kneeling around the Black Lives Matter words on the court, something reported by Malika Andrews of ESPN.

The New Orleans Pelicans and Utah Jazz are discussing a plan to surround the Black Lives Matter signage on the Wide World of Sports arena court and kneel together during the playing of the national anthem on Thursday, league sources told ESPN… Instead of having two groups protest separately, the Pelicans and Jazz are adamant that they want to display a united front, sources said.

The coaches are expected to join the players in the demonstration.
