The NBA wants to get ahead of any protests that might happen during the national anthem when preseason games start in October.
It and the National Basketball Players Association sent out a letter to players Wednesday, asking for help in fostering programs that will spark "meaningful action" regarding police violence.
Interestingly, the letter, which an ESPN reporter obtained, doesn't mention national anthem protests in the paragraph about what that "meaningful action" might be.
