For Immediate Release- July 10th, 2022

Houston, Texas. The National Basketball League- United States (NBL-US) today announced the addition of the Northeast Division that will begin play in the upcoming 2022-2023 season. The NBL Northeast division is the most aggressive single expansion the NBL has had since it's inaugural season in 2020. The Division will begin play in December with six teams. 

“The growth of the NBL-United States during the last couple of years has been phenomenal,” stated David Hutchinson NBL-US Commissioner. When asked about the addition of the Northeast division David Hutchinson said. " The National Basketball League-United States is excited and very fortunate to have finalized the addition of a Northeast  US division. This is not just an accomplishment for the region or just the league, but it's also paramount to the global vision of the league and sport of basketball. Geographically, this was very calculated and intentional. The region is dedicated and a very resourceful one. Our league is truly a big winner achieving this level of expansion at this point in our existence."

“The NBL-US is committed to develop each team as a brand identity, maximizing its potential through social media, community outreach, public relations and strategic marketing programs,” stated Will Campbell NBL-US General Manager. Having worked with a diverse group of athletes and teams, we will focus on expanding the overall reach of our staff and athletes and make an impact in every community we have a team in. We are very excited about The Northeast Division and looking forward to working with the new teams as we build the NBL- United States brand.”

Lamont Alston will be leading the Northeast Division as it's President of Basketball Operations. Alston is no stranger to professional basketball spending the last eight years in the ABA as the owner of the Elmira Eagles, and Hornell Bulls. In 2020 he was elevated to co division chairmen of the ABA's Northeast division where he was highly respected as a executive, and a person that owners of teams in the division was comfortable and excited to work with. Alston will again take charge in building a powerhouse division that will challenge for the NBL- United States championship. When asked about his new role in the NBL Alston stated. " I am very excited to be working with the NBL brand to establish a great Northeast Division. I know the talent level we have in the area and working with the team owners, coaches, staff, and players I know we will do great things this season, and moving forward. The opportunities that the NBL-US provides athletes to advance in their careers Nationally and Internationally is great for what we are trying to accomplish here. I look forward to getting to work on establishing relationships with teams in the region, and working with Commissioner Hutchinson to build this division into one of the great divisions in professional basketball. 

The Northeast division teams will be announced soon including coaches, staff, and combines.
