The National Basketball Association's (NBA) San Antonio Spurs have expanded their partnership with local broadcaster KENS-TV.

The CBS free-to-air Texan affiliate has agreed a multi-year extension to its deal with team owner Spurs Sports & Entertainment that will allow it to screen up to 14 of the team's games each season. The partnership between the two parties dates back to the 2000/01 NBA season.

"We've enjoyed a tremendous, mutually beneficial partnership with KENS-TV that spans more than a decade," said Mike Kickirillo, the director of broadcasting for Spurs Sports & Entertainment. "We're excited to continue our collaboration with KENS 5 to bring Spurs fans the best possible broadcast viewing experience."

KENS-TV president and general manager Bob McGann added: "We're proud to continue our relationship as the official broadcast partner of the Spurs. San Antonio loves their Spurs, and we want to continue to provide fans with the best access to all things silver and black."
