The NBA basketball league may allow players to personalise their jerseys with statements that promote social justice issues or charitable causes.
Oklahoma City guard Chris Paul, president of the National Basketball Players Association, said the union and the league are currently collaborating on the initiative.
Messages like "Black Lives Matter" or "I Can't Breathe" or the names of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor or Ahmaud Arbery could replace the players' names on the backs of their uniforms.
The NBA season is scheduled to resume on July 30 with 22 teams competing in Orlando.
