G League

Walnut Creek Is the Home of the New G League Select Team

On August 3, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported that the NBA G League has decided on Walnut Creek, California as the location of the new Select Team for elite prospects. Walnut Creek is located about 26km east of Oakland in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Los Angeles was believed to be the base of the Select Team but the G League have opted elsewhere.

A report from Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports back in April suggested that the Sports Academy (formerly known as the Mamba Sports Academy) in Thousand Oaks, California was the front runner. Haynes did mention that other options were being evaluated. Since, Walnut Creek got the nod.

At present time, the league hasn’t officially commented.
