Rockets become DraftKings’ third NBA partner

Fantasy sports brand DraftKings has agreed a partnership with a third NBA basketball franchise in the space of two weeks after signing up with the Houston Rockets.

The duration of the deal was not announced, but it includes branded team bench areas and courtside signage.

DraftKings announced a first NBA partnership with the Philadelphia 76ers at the start of December and added the Boston Celtics last week.

DraftKings also recently secured a partnership with the North American NHL ice hockey league as well as agreements with NFL American football franchises the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots.
