Dallas, Texas – The Pro Basketball Association announced on Friday that Antoine Broxsie has been named the National Director of Scouting for the PBA. Broxsie is a NBA coach having worked for the Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA. In addition, he’s has worked as an assistant coach in the NBA G-League and is currently coaching in China with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA).
Broxsie is a retired professional basketball player having played 16 years professionally in Countries all over the World. His connection to PBA Commissioner Chris Terrell was playing for then Coach Terrell in the Mexican league of CiBaCoPa for Fuerza Guinda Nogales in 2010 and for Cimarones de Ensenada in the Liga Nacional (LNBP) in 2007. Broxsie got his start at the Pro level playing in the World Basketball Association in 2005-2006 when Terrell was the Deputy Commissioner of the WBA.
Broxsie was a long time dominant force in leagues globally but was especially known for being a rim protector at 6’11 that could also step out on offense and knock down the jumper consistently. His ability to play above the rim as a pick and roll big man, pick and pop stretch 5, soft baby hook in the post, or face up and knock down jumpers from distance combined with his elite level rim protection made him a star for many years abroad.
These two go back a long time and know each other well. The Pro Basketball Association gives players an opportunity to show their abilities in a pro setting for scouts both foreign and domestic.
“Having someone NBA caliber like Coach Antoine Broxsie just takes the league to another level. He’ll be watching our games and scouting players and be my right hand man that can give advise on a players path whether that be the NBA Summer League, NBA G-League, NBA workouts, Overseas opportunities. This man is an incredible resource and was a terrific player but an even better person that truly gives of himself to the sport. I’m honored that he will help us with the players in the PBA.”
