Interesting bit of info:


The Vermont Frost Heaves will return to the Premier Basketball League after a fan-driven fundraising campaign resulted in $105,000 being pledged to operate for the 2010-11 season. The league office had imposed a $100,000 target by Aug. 1. Six teams are confirmed for this PBL season: Vermont, the Rochester RazorSharks, the Halifax Rainmen, the St. John (New Brunswick) Mill Rats, the Quebec Kebs and the Lawton-Fort Sill Cavalry. The salary cap for 10-man rosters will be $75,000.

Salary cap of $75,000

Post by PaulD » Sun Aug 08, 2010 11:39 pm

ten men salary cap of $75,000. Not much salary for a 4 month season.

Wasn't the salary cap for ABA teams $120,000 in 2005? Of course the ABA played a longer season and had a twelve man roster.http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/writers/alexander_wolff/12/09/frost.heaves/1.html
one player on a Dleague contract can make $25,500.

According to Premier Basketball League Chairman of the Board (and Rochester RazorSharks CEO) Dr. Sev Hrywnak, the PBL will have at least eight teams this season (the Kentucky Bluegrass Stallions signed on last week) and the salary cap per team will be $135,000 (not $75,000)...

Guy said the Premier Basketball League is adding teams in Kentucky (Lexington and Owensboro) and Tennessee (Nashville), making West Virginia an attractive option geographically.

“West Virginia would be ideal,” he said.


Lexington; Kentucky Bluegrass Stallions (ok)
Owensboro; Kentucky Bisons
Nashville (Tennessee); Music City Stars (ex Nashville Broncs)
West Virginia; West Virginia Blazers

That article is out of date and I believe that the people claiming to speak on the behalf of the PBL spoke about things they weren't qualified to speak about and are no longer associated with the league as a result.

New Teams

Post by TChasePBL » Tue Aug 10, 2010 2:59 pm

As my name was added at the end of Frank's post, I feel the need to reply. John Guy does not directly represent the PBL. He was assisting with a tournament that was to be held in West Virginia. The Kentucky Bisons will not be joining the PBL, as they have decided to remain in the ABA (best wishes to the Sills family).

The only team confirmed to be added is Kentucky's Bluegrass Stallions. Another team will be announced shortly. Any other statements regarding teams joining the PBL is pure speculation.

Nashville, Tenn., and Dayton, Ohio, expansion?

Post by Frank Mart » Thu Aug 26, 2010 9:42 pm

Meanwhile, the league is expected to announce new franchises shortly, including teams in Nashville, Tenn., and Dayton, Ohio. They will join the Vermont Frost Heaves on the docket as that franchise survived a financial crisis this off-season that threatened its existence. But a local community group generated more than $100,000 to save the franchise before an Aug. 1 deadline.

Anyone know how/why Gilchrese is on SJs protected list but finished last season in HALI? Not that I'm sorry to see him go, but it was mildly entertaining watching him kick his legs out on jump shots, fall down and hope for a call - can't believe the NBA (LOL) hasn't picked him up with that kind of skill, then again, maybe soccer is his real game?

Nashville and Dayton?

Post by LandoG » Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:18 pm

Any news on when we should expect confirmation one way or the other on Nashville and/or Dayton?....I remember the Dayton Wings from the old Windjammer days.

Great to see Saint John now officially up and running and getting involved with the community.
