NBA正考虑在印度建立一个职业篮球联赛,这将是继今年3月开始的非洲篮球联赛之后,NBA打造的第二个海外篮球联赛。

NBA印度总裁拉杰什·塞西向印度报纸《经济时报》说道,去年在本国进行的季前赛的成功促进着NBA组织继续前进,NBA也正在考察未来两三年在印度开展篮球联赛的潜力。

塞西称:“印度季前赛的成功是NBA在印度的拐点,当这些比赛在印度引起了很大的轰动,同时它也达成了许多目标。这也在印度国内传递了一个信息,那就是印度已经为下一步做好了准备。NBA赛事也为了印度吸引到了其他队伍以及球员的注意。”

NBA总裁亚当·萧华十月称NBA组织正考虑在未来的5年内在印度建立篮球联赛。

塞西说:“我们正努力在印度国内构建篮球相关的生态系统,篮球联赛也能为球员们创造巨大的经济价值,届时他们便可以在小型或大型的联赛中比拼。”

塞西另外补充道,NBA印度已经与25家有意在联盟内拥有球队的企业有过谈话,“我们尚未确定最终会有多少球队,可能会在8到12支之间,但目前一切都在进行之中,我们还列出了22座体育场馆。”
