The Los Angeles Summer Pro League 2014
The Los Angeles Summer Pro League returns for an exciting 2014 season with new opportunities and a new format. The SPL, an NBA sanctioned event for 41 seasons, assists in the development of professional players i.e. free agents, international players and undrafted talent wanting a shot at playing for a professional basketball team domestically or internationally. Last summer several players secured professional jobs all over the world from the NBDL, Ireland, Argentina, Japan and Russia to name a few. What the SPL offers is a great basketball environment, a dedicated staff, the opportunity to play against talented players from around the US and most importantly, each game is filmed.
This summer the SPL will offer two locations; Los Angeles and Orlando. The SPL in Los Angeles will feature 16 pro free teams. Each team will play in a 16 team bracket tournament July 23 - 26, 2014. All teams will be guaranteed four games unless your team loses both 1st and 2nd rounds. The championship game will be played at the world famous Venice Beach, California where 100,000+ people on a given summer weekend day walk through the Venice Beach courts.
The SPL in Orlando will commence on July 11 - 20, 2014 at the Winter Park Community Center. Up to 16 teams will be invited to play in a round robin event and each team will be guaranteed 6 games.
