The Toronto Raptors and Rogers Sportsnet announced Wednesday they have agreed to a multi-year deal that returns the National Basketball Association (NBA) to the all-sports network. Per company policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Rogers Sportsnet and its new national sports channel will be the home for 35 Raptors regular season games. It will also air a minimum of 35 NBA US regular season contests and have the broadcast rights to 22 NBA playoff games, as well as feature programming NBA Action and NBA XL.

“It is great to have Rogers Sportsnet back in the NBA family,” said Tom Anselmi, Executive Vice-President, Chief Operating Officer of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. “They are a great partner and we are pleased to have the Raptors showcased on their properties.”

“We are excited about the return of the Raptors and the NBA to Sportsnet,” said Doug Beeforth, President, Rogers Sportsnet. “The Raptors will be a flagship property for our new national sports channel, as will the many other NBA games we will offer Canadian basketball fans.”

Raptors games last appeared on Rogers Sportsnet during the 2007-08 season. Rogers Sportsnet originally aired Raptors games from 1998-2008.

A complete 2010-11 Raptors broadcast schedule will be released at a later date.
