As the coronavirus pandemic continues to make an impact on professional sports' finances, the NBA has made a move to cut costs.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA will cut salaries of 100 of the league's top-earning executives by 20%, including commissioner Adam Silver and Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum. 

Members of the league's support or administrative staff will be impacted for now, as only the top executives and senior leaders will experience cuts. 

This comes days after the Sixers informed employees making over $50,000 annually their salaries would be reduced by 20%, and then reversed course following public backlash. 

The NBA, along with the NHL, has taken cost-cutting in a different direction.
