The league the Halifax Rainmen are going to play next season will be announced later this week.
A press conference has been called for Thursday morning at the Halifax Metro Centre. A media release issued yesterday says Rainmen President and CEO Andre Levingston, along with Saint John Mill Rats President and General Manager Ian McCarthy and Quebec Kebs President Conrad Bernier, will announce which league the Canadian teams will join for 2011-2012 at the press conference.
This group had been hoping to launch a new Canadian minor professional basketball league and targeted Thursday for a decision on whether it will move forward.
The Rainmen, Mill Rats and Kebs all dropped out of the Premier Basketball League last month.
Levingston and Mill Rats president McCarthy visited London, Ont., recently and have met with representatives from a number of other cities.
