EuroLeague Execs Consider Expansion To 18 Teams, Address Conflict With FIBA
EuroLeague execs met on Tuesday and "addressed a number of topics," holding "preliminary discussions" about EuroLeague expansion, according to AS. It is possible that the league "could decide to expand from 16 to 18 teams" in March or April. Two French clubs "have shown an interest in joining the competition: Strasbourg and Asvel," which is owned by NBA San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker. The EuroLeague also "reiterated its commitment to finding a solution to the scheduling conflict with FIBA." During the meeting, "three possible alternatives to the current calendar were discussed" (AS, 12/6).
