A bankruptcy deal could change local sports broadcasts for the NBA and NHL.

A series of (still-ongoing) streaming outages continues to plague fans who just want to watch their teams but only have one way to do it: the local RSN.

Now Sports Business Journal reports on bankruptcy filings indicating Diamond Sports, owner of the problem-riddled Bally Sports RSNs, has a deal with the NBA that will send broadcast rights back to the league after this season and is working on a similar arrangement with the NHL. The only issue? In its closing, the piece notes teams might work out new deals with Diamond next year.
