Montreal Royal News Release

Montreal, Canada. The ABA Montreal Royal professional basketball team has announced that Abel Joseph has been named General Manager. Mr. Joseph has been involved with basketball for almost 20 years in the Montreal basketball community, and played at Marquette University as well as in Europe with Vevey and Carouge. "I am very excited about this opportunity. The ABA is becoming very big and important in Canada with so many teams and our goal is to make the Royal the very best among them - both on and off the court. The fans of Montreal really like the ABA style of play. Since my playing days are pretty much over, this ABA mania is a good place to start giving back to the sport I Iove," said Joseph.
