NZNBL focused on growth, targets additional team from Oz

Featuring a ground-breaking first ever Australian team with the entry of Tasmania's Southern Huskies this year, newly appointed General Manager Justin Nelson’s mandate is to expand the league even further. With a proposed competition model that includes expansion up to 12 teams, the former Melbourne Boomers General Manager was keen to explore the possibility of adding another team from across the Tasman.

NZNBL focused on growth, targets additional team from Australia

"For example, a basketball market like Melbourne could certainly support an off-season team from United or Phoenix, or perhaps a team they jointly work together on. With the Southern Huskies about to start life in the New Zealand league, the door is definitely ajar for further interest to come from Australian teams."

Would be interesting to see if an Aussie bid eventuates.

It's an interesting idea.
I haven't really followed the news, but is the SEABL now defunct?
But I'm not sure of the reward.
There's the inevitable question of which Australians are allowed to play, the Australian club has to carry the cost of travel both ways, and is there really any advantage over playing in the new Elite league?

The NBL clubs would be best placed to carry the costs, but do they want to risk alienating Victorian clubs by poaching their players? Its the same argument that routinely surfaces about the Cats having a team in the SBL.

Someone else who thinks they have been following the Seabl/NBL1 topic who doesn't have a clue.Yet they think they are right.
