Philippine Basketball League Commissioner Chino Trinidad and Samahang Basketball ng Pilipinas Executive Director Noli Eala say the new league will be a big boost to local basketball.
“Since we are the US team in the South East Asian region, we can see some of our players, coaches and trainers in various teams of the league. At the same time, we can help raise the level of competition in the region,” said Trinidad.
“Definitely, it will open an opportunity to a lot of Filipino players. Even our coaches, I’m sure some of them will be hired either as a coach or consultant, so it’s a blessing to us,” said Trinidad.
