NBL Teams from Australian League to Play vs. National Basketball Association in Preseason Games

Three NBL teams will play in the NBA pre-season

The Daily Telegraph in Sydney reported Monday that the Jazz and the Sydney Kings of Australia's National Basketball League will face off in an exhibition game on October 3 at Vivint Arena.

But the two latter fixtures may be problematic given the games will be played after United and the Bullets' opening NBL games.

Following that, United will clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena, and the Bullets will take on the Phoenix Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Arizona.

Dates for those contests have not yet been announced.

Ingles was chosen NBL rookie of the year after playing with the Melbourne South Dragons in 2006-07.

However, the matchups against teams from other leagues could provide yet another avenue to get fans excited about basketball.

NBL players could be pitted against basketball superstars Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Rudy Gobert during a trio of NBA pre-season matches in the United States.

"As somebody who played in the National Basketball Association I know how much this opportunity means".

THE NBL has taken a significant step forward. "For the NBL to be able to play some of the biggest teams in the world shows how far our league has come", NBL owner Larry Kestelman said. The United and Bullets games will come in the midst of the NBL regular season.

The Sydney Kings will visit the Utah Jazz, whose roster includes Aussies Joe Ingles and Dante Exum, on October 2.

Both have made several trips to the U.S. to meet with NBA executives, as well as to attend NBA Summer League action.

Adams is the only New Zealander now playing in the National Basketball Association and last season agreed to a record-breaking four-year US$100 million contract extension with the Thunder.

"We are one of the few leagues in the world that can actually challenge their teams and put up a good fight". From humble beginnings, the NBL now sells out stadiums with more than 650,000 attending games each season and live TV coverage nationally.
