Colorado 14ers, Dakota Wizards, Idaho Stampede and Sioux Falls Skyforce leaving CBA for NBA Development League

The Continental Basketball Association announced today that four teams have withdrawn from the league to join the NBA Development League. The expansion Colorado 14ers, Dakota Wizards, Idaho Stampede, and Sioux Falls Skyforce will not be competing in the CBA for the 2006-07 season.

"The CBA extends its best wishes to the departing clubs and thanks them for their contributions to the league," said CBA Commissioner Gary Hunter. "The CBA remains a viable option for minor league franchises, players who are seeking to develop and advance to the next level, and coaches who are seeking to enrich their careers.

"The passion and commitment that has been expressed by our current teams gives us great optimism that the CBA will continue its unique and colorful 60-year reign as the oldest professional basketball league in the world for years to come."

The CBA recently completed its 60th anniversary season on March 27 with the Yakama Sun Kings defeating the Gary Steelheads in a best-of-three-game series. That series featured the CBA's 2006 Player of the Year, Anthony Goldwire (Sun Kings), and the CBA's 2006 Coach of the Year, Jaren Jackson (Steelheads).

CBA FACTS

The CBA had 13 NBA call-ups this season, giving the league 600 NBA call-ups since the league began keeping track in 1978.

Currently, 10 NBA head coaches have either coached or played in the CBA. Included in that list are: Rick Carlisle (Indiana), Maurice Cheeks (Philadelphia), Bob Hill (Seattle), Phil Jackson (Los Angeles Lakers), Eddie Jordan (Washington), George Karl (Denver), Sam Mitchell (Toronto), Flip Saunders (Detroit), Jerry Sloan (Utah), and Terry Stotts (Milwaukee).

There were 37 members of NBA coaching staffs this season that had ties to the CBA.

38 CBA alums were on 2005-06 NBA opening-night rosters.

The average attendance for CBA games this season was 2,426 (192 games). The Yakama Sun Kings led the league with an average attendance of 3,824.

The CBA is the oldest professional basketball league in the world, having recently completed its 60th anniversary season.
