About the IBL
The International Basketball Leagues (IBL) is a league of leagues, with expertise in the governance of standards, rules, regulations, marketing, data collection and efficiencies in the highest level of men's professional minor league basketball outside of the NBA Development League. For ten seasons 2004-2014 the IBL hosted teams spanning North America and Internationally engaging high level athletes, coaches, officials and business professionals, dedicated to fostering international basketball talent focused on providing family friendly events for fans in communities across North America.
As we now focus on a consortium of leading and servicing Pro Ams to increase exposure, value, standards and combining the talents of current NBA athletes, overseas returners, and college players who have completed their eligibility, the IBL is again leading an evolution in professional men's basketball working with the NBA and D-League as well as FIBA. Still providing family friendly events for fans in communities, the Leagues serve as a platform for players to showcase their talents, now including competing against current NBA talent. Through our standards and technology coaches, officials and players accomplishments are captured through video, real time statistics, full player profiles and scouting reports to provide authentic development of athletes, referees and front office staff offering opportunities to move into placements in the NBA Development League and overseas.
The Pro Am leagues who participate in our consortium compete in a season after the NBA Development League has completed and many overseas leagues have just completed their now extended seasons. The IBL is working with the Portland Pro Am and others, playing in quality venues with NBA and FIBA on court rules which create a fast paced, high scoring, exciting game on both ends. Players move into positions with the NBA Development League as well as international leagues overseas such as the Euroleague, Liga ACB, Basketball Japan League (BJL), Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), Basketball Bundesliga (BBL), Portuguese Basketball League (LCB) and many more. Officials move into positions with the NCAA DI & DII, NBA Development League and more lead by Tommy Nunez Jr working closely with the NBA and D-League offices. Watch for more development, locations and opportunities to collaborate with the International Basketball Leagues, leagues of opportunity.
