NEW WINTER BASKETBALL LEAGUE BEING PROPOSED
Published September 16, 1994
Even after the death of the National Basketball League last summer and the World Basketball League in '92, former NBL franchise and NBA Cavaliers owner Ted Stepien "is actively pursuing parties to form a winter version of the defunct NBL" to begin play in December '95. Stepien said they are looking for commitments from at least eight cities to start the North American Basketball League. Cities would include Regina, Winnipeg, Saksatoon, Calgary, Montreal and Edmonton, and possibly others closer to the U.S. border. The NABL would run from December to March, have a 40-game schedule and each team would have an operating budget of "no more than" $500,000. It would be run after the CBA starts allowing for players cut from the CBA to join (Steven Forbes, WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 9/15).
