With Anaheim unveiled it is safe to say there will be 15 teams. There are now 14, and David Stern said he would like 15 teams with two NBA affiliates. If they are going to suburbs of big cities, Gwinnett could be a possibility if they want to stay in the east. But I've heard they are moving out of the east so that might not happen. I have also heard Council Bluffs is a possibility.

With the PitBulls, I'd think this is how the affiliates would be:

FL PitBulls - Miami, New Jersey
FL Flame - Orlando, Boston
Colorado - Denver, Utah
Anaheim - LA Clippers, Milwaukee
Ft. Worth - Dallas, Atlanta
Austin - Houston, San Antonio
Albuquerque - Phoenix, Sacramento
Tulsa - New Orleans, Indiana
Arkansas - Memphis, Cleveland
Bakersfield - LA Lakers, Portland
Idaho - Seattle, Golden State
Sioux Falls - Toronto, Chicago
Dakota - Minnesota, Detroit
Fayetteville - Charlotte, New York
Roanoke - Washington, Philadelphia

The Lakers are expected to own a D-League team themselves. It would be the first NBA team own a minor league team. The team would play at the Staples center and some games would be part of a double header with the D-League team playing in the afternoon. With the addition of the Los Angeles team and possible the Florida PitBulls would bring the league to 16 teams.

Uncasville, Connecticut(Mohegan Sun Arena)
Burlington, Vermont

ATLANTIC
Trenton, NJ
Baltimore
Gwinnett, GA
Florida Flame
Ft. Lauderdale PitBulls

CENTRAL
Columbus
Pittsburgh
Grand Rapids
Louisville
Knoxville, TN

MIDWEST
Austin
Ft. Worth
Baton Rouge
Tulsa
Arkansas

MOUNTAIN
Dakota
Sioux Falls
Idaho
Colorado
Tacoma

SOUTHWEST
Anaheim
Bakersfiled
Los Angeles
Las Vegas
Albuquerque

I want Green Bay to get a D-League team someday.
Then the Bucks can have their own affiliate!

It looks like the Lakers are about to get a team as well (which should be announced next Tuesday at the owners meetings).

Is this Ft. Lauderdale Pitbulls thing legit? Or am I hearing wrong? Also are there any other message boards for minor league hoops? I ask because I enjoy reading the thoughts here.

Here is a link:
abasite.proboards28.com

It only covers ABA, WBA, and IBL right now. However, it is considering adding CBA and D-League.

My screen name on the board is Burmeister for ABA CEO!
