Adam Lefkoe has signed a multi-year contract extension with Bleacher Report and Turner Sports. As part of the new deal, Lefkoe will become the new host of NBA on TNT on Tuesdays, The Big Lead has learned.

The Tuesday show will also feature Shaquille O'Neal, Dwyane Wade, and Candace Parker.

The jump to television is a strong indication of what Turner Sports thinks of Lefkoe. He has been a focal point of Bleacher Report over the past few years. After his podcast co-host Chris Simms departed for NBC Sports, Lefkoe started hosting The Adam Lefkoe Show podcast on Bleacher Report's new Gridiron vertical.

This past summer, Lefkoe spoke to The Big Lead about his role with Bleacher Report, his career path and the GQ profile phenomenon.
