The NBA is working with ESPN toward a televised H-O-R-S-E competition involving high profile players, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The program would give spectators a chance to watch new, original content and it would allow the league and broadcasting giant to do so in a relatively safe manner.

Players would shoot in isolation, Wojnarowski writes, presumable in their home gyms. (Sorry, Giannis).

The news comes as the league adjusts to its new reality, eager to explore creative ways of bringing content to fans while abiding by drastic measures in place to thwart the COVID-19 pandemic.

Just yesterday, an NBA 2K tournament held by the league kicked off, showcasing a 16-seed bracket comprised solely of NBA players.

It’s unclear which players would participate in any temporary competitions while the world awaits the return of normalcy or when such a tournament would take place.
