P.E.I.’s professional basketball franchise is now a slam-dunk. The only thing that remains to be seen is where the National Basketball League of Canada franchise will play its home games.
The league announced its formal acceptance of a P.E.I. team yesterday. Co-owner Duncan Shaw said the host city — either Summerside or Charlottetown — will be announced later this week.
Summerside’s Credit Union Place has the advantage over Charlottetown in the form of a basketball court. The Charlottetown Civic Centre doesn’t have a floor and would require funding of up to $150,000 to cover the expense.
