Additionally, the article you posted was the exact AP article that had already been posted.

Walton Moves to ABC/ESPN, Barkley Stays With TNT

.c The Associated Press

NEW YORK (July 25) -- Bill Walton and Tom Tolbert are heading from NBC to Disney network stations ABC and ESPN to call NBA games, while Charles Barkley signed a new deal with TNT.

Walton, a Hall of Famer, will team with play-by-play announcer Brad Nessler for ABC and ESPN, which, along with TNT, are starting a six-year, $4.6 billion TV rights deal with the NBA next season.

Tolbert, who played in the league from 1988-95, will join Mike Tirico as an ABC studio analyst and also will be a game analyst.

Walton and Nessler will be the lead duo for ABC's coverage and for ESPN's Wednesday games.

"With the NBA returning to ABC Sports for the first time in nearly three decades, we have assembled an announce crew that provides credibility and instant name recognition,'' ABC Sports president Howard Katz said Thursday.

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! NOT WALTON!
