Shaquille O’Neal has officially signed a multi-year agreement with Turner Sports.

Starting with the 2011-12 season (whenever that begins), O’Neal will join TNT’s Inside the NBA crew as a full-time analyst. He will be a contributor to TNT’s NBA All-Star weekend and NBA Playoffs coverage along with providing analysis on NBA TV and NBA.com.

“I can’t wait to begin my new career with Turner. Over the past several years the team at Turner has taken the NBA and entertainment, in general, to a whole new level. I’m grateful for the opportunity to join the amazing team at Inside the NBA and I hope I can further the fans’ experience on a regular basis,” said O’Neal.

In addition to his broadcast deal with Turner Sports, O’Neal has a development deal with Turner’s entertainment and animation networks.

“We are thrilled to have Shaquille O’Neal join Turner Sports and our marquee roster of announcers and analysts,” said David Levy, president of sales, distribution and sports for Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. “His unique insights, perspective as one of the league’s all-time great players and personality will be the perfect complement to our award-winning studio team of Ernie, Kenny and Charles, as well as to our programming on NBA TV and NBA.com.”
