NBC Sports nabs three

Rashad, Storm to act as ringmasters

NBC Sports has hired three new studio commentators for its NBA coverage: Jayson Williams, former center of the New Jersey Nets and clubhouse quipster; Pat Croce, the loquacious former president of the Philadelphia 76ers; and Mike Fratello, a former NBA coach at Atlanta and Cleveland, whose nickname is “Tsar of the Telestrator.”

Veteran NBA hosts Ahmad Rashad and Hannah Storm will act as ringmasters for the NBC commentators. Sportswriter Peter Vecsey will be back for his 12th season on NBC, delivering news and analysis from the site of the featured game.
