Henderson, Nevada – The Pro Basketball Association announced on Thursday that the Silver State Mustangs had been awarded a franchise for the 2021 PBA Spring-Summer season. Marcus Mooney is the owner of the Mustangs out of Henderson, Nevada. He’s been coaching and training basketball for over 20 years. The goal of the organization is to bring professional basketball to Henderson.

The Mustangs will play in the Southwest Division and Regional Director of League Operations Samantha Stukes has been working to assemble an all-star cast of top level teams in the division. Silver State joins Las Vegas Huskies and Nevada Pharaohs in the greater Southern Nevada area. The 7 City Knights were announced just last week in the Phoenix area. The New Mexico Bullsnakes make Albuquerque home. And the Southwest Desertcats (owned by Stukes) play out of El Paso, Texas. The division now features six teams and that is the blueprint model of the PBA. Travel that is limited to divisional play where each team plays the others once at home and once on the road in a 10 game regular season over 17 weeks followed immediately by a single elimination playoffs where the first round between top clubs is at the home of the higher seed, again in division.

Southwest Division – Current, pending, and proposed markets

When a team comes out of the Southwest they’d be matched up in the Second round, again single elimination, against the neighboring division, at the home of the higher seed. The classic model noted above works to keep travel costs down by eliminating the need for flights. Hotels are far and few between as well except for once when travelling from one side of the division to the other. Southwest Desertcats can make a Vegas weekend out of it and the clubs out of Nevada can do the same when they play in El Paso and Albuquerque. That one trip all season can be planned for and budgeted but keep the rest of the travel to a minimum and that allows for greater financial flexibility. The PBA is currently in conversation with clubs in California who are trying to throw their hat into the ring. It’s possible with the right team in the right market that the division could see expansion once again before the Pro Draft Combines at the end of the Month.

50 teams Nationwide – 2 round Draft = 100 Players DRAFTED!

If you want Pro – You want the PBA

The Pro Basketball Association 2021 PBA Pro Combine and Draft will be held in two locations beginning with 3/27 in Rochester, New York and then 4/3 in Dallas, Texas. With pending announcements the PBA will have a minimum of 48 teams (From Seattle to New York City and everywhere in between – America) in the two round draft which means 96 draft eligible players will become a part of the Pro Basketball Association.
