The NBA is in talks to have an in-season tournament.

The concept was reportedly discussed on a Competition Committee call on Monday, with talks that the prize money would feature $1 million per player.

Naturally, A’ja Wilson was quick to point out the similarities between what the NBA is discussing and the Commissioner’s Cup.

Meanwhile, Jessica Clarendon, wife of Minnesota Lynx player Layshia Clarendon, had a cheeky suggestion for the name.
