The NBA wants to double the TV-rights fees it receives from ESPN's majority owner Disney (DIS) and Time Warner's (TWX) Turner Broadcasting, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing sources. As the league looks to lock up deals for nationally televised games int he coming months, doubling the payments suggests that any new deals could be worth a total of nearly $15B for the NBA, assuming an eight-year contract.
