Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that it has added Milwaukee WI to its growing list of 2014 expansion teams.  “At last,” stated ABA CEO, “we have a  team in Wisconsin..and it is long overdue.  There are some great basketball players there and now they’ll have an opportunity to compete.  We’re very excited and hope that this is the first of several teams in Wisconsin.”
The team will be owned by local entrepreneur Lawrence Harris, who has a sold background in sales, marketing, advertising and sports.  “He understood from day one what it takes to have a successful team,” added Newman.  “Very often new owners focus on the game of basketball…Lawrence has a firm handle on the business of basketball too and we see this organization as having great potential on and off the court.”
“I’ve been following the ABA for quite sometime,” commented Harris.  “And I have been intrigued with their slogan, “More Than Just a Game.”  The league seems to have such a commitment to the community, doing things to help youth and many great not-for-profit organizations, it is a natural for us.  And to be able to provide the sports fans of Milwaukee with exciting professional  basketball at affordable prices is just a bonus.  We are going to make this one of the best organizations in the ABA.”
