The NBA will paint "Black Lives Matter" on all three courts it will use when it resumes the 2019-20 season at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe and Ramona Shelburne.

The phrase reportedly would be featured inside both sidelines.

Lowe and Shelburne reported the WNBA is also considering a similar nod to the "Black Lives Matter" movement when it opens its 2020 season at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Chris Paul, who's also the president of the National Basketball Players Association, told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears the union was working with the league to have players wear "personalized social justice, social cause or charity messages" on the backs of their jerseys.
