"Wonder who the other team is?"
IIRC it was said in the original article (from the NZBL) that there was also a Western Sydney team.
I suppose that on the plus side, if it actually works and you start to pull a crowd, then you have a basis for touting a (A)NBL team.
There is some cachet in it being an "international" league, and lets be honest, there is nothing Australian fans like better than whopping the Kiwis.
I have not been following them closely, but remains to be seen how successful the Huskies will be. It will be difficult for the NZBL to strike the right balance between allowing the Ausie teams to be competitive, whilst not allowing them to dominate.
Plus they also need to balance the prestige boost of including Australian teams, against the possibility they will piss off after a couple of seasons.
