"We are very pleased and proud to have the ABA's first Latino team in the US," added Sanchez. "We're looking forward to completing with the teams in our division as well as teams in other cities across the United States. We know we will be very competitive by showcasing some of the best professional players from Chicago, Mexico, Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba, South America, Central America and of course, the United States. We are excited to be providing a fan-friendly, exciting and affordable experience."
