D-League Update

Nothing major but it looks like Portland, Maine are putting a serious push on for that coveted Celtics D-League affiliation.  A few article have popped up and they all talk about the D-league planning more north eastern expansion.  This one has a quote from Rainmen PR director Nancy Sheppard:

Manchester and Halifax are already home to teams in the Premier Basketball League, and only one of them, the Halifax Rainmen, is interested in switching leagues. Halifax applied for an expansion franchise and met with D-League officials earlier this year.

Nancy Sheppard, a spokeswoman for the Rainmen, said the team is still interested, but D-League officials said Halifax’s location is a hurdle. “We’re on the back burner until we get more teams in the Northeast,” Sheppard said.
