We`re Summer Pro League


The Los Angeles Summer Pro League (SPL), an NBA sanctioned event for 41 seasons, assists in the development of professional players i.e. domestic free agents, international players, undiscovered and undrafted talent wanting a professional platform to showcase their skills to secure professional basketball opportunities.

The market for professional basketball leagues and skills camps has become more saturated in the world, however, the SPL is the longest-running professional (summer) basketball organization of its kind.

Many former and current NBA players, scouts and officials have participated in the SPL; Magic Johnson, AC Green, Dennis Rodman, Leon Wood, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Violet Palmer just to name a few. Also, over 1200 free agents have used the SPL as a platform to gain entrance into the FIBA leagues.
