Nintendo announced it will release a free update for Nintendo Switch Sports on July 9 that will add basketball to the game.

"Basketball is coming to Spocco Square in the Nintendo Switch Sports game as a free update!," reads details on the update. "Use motion controls to sink as many baskets as you can within the time limit in the solo Three-Point Challenge.

"If you’re looking for friendly competition, then up to four players can compete locally in Five-Streak Battle or Three-Point Contest, and you can dribble, pass and score in two-on-two matches locally or online."

Nintendo Switch Sports is available for the Nintendo Switch.

I don't entirely approve of Nintendo's habit of releasing sports games on the Switch with minimal content while promising to provide DLC later, but have to commend them for actually adding free content years after release.
