Justin Timberlake has signed on to write the theme song for ABC's coverage of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and will appear in the network's NBA promotional campaign, dubbed "Can't Get Enough." The 'N Sync star will also serve as a correspondent at NBA games and other ABC Sports events.

"Justin Timberlake is a mega-star, and we are excited to have him as part of ABC Sports," ABC Sports senior VP/executive producer Michael Pearl said in a statement. "This provides a unique integration of sports and entertainment, and Justin's interest and enthusiasm not only in the NBA, but in all sports, should help provide our broadcasts with a new, fresh approach."

Earlier this year, Timberlake was a special correspondent for Turner Sports, reporting from the PGA championship, NBA playoffs, and NASCAR races for the TNT network, and covering college football and Major League Baseball contests for TBS.

The artist is gearing up for a 29-date European tour, beginning Nov. 16 in Ghent, Belgium, pausing after a Dec. 21 show in Dublin and picking back up Jan. 9 in London.
