CEBL SHOWCASE TO BRING TOP CANADIAN BASKETBALL TALENT TO MATTAMY CENTRE - Aug 3, 2018

The new Canadian Elite Basketball League is convening many of Canada's top professional
basketball players for the inaugural CEBL Showcase, scheduled for Sunday, August 26 at Ryerson's
Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto.

The Showcase is designed to introduce players to the professional basketball league, and for
league officials to meet and assess the skills of approximately 40 of the country's top players. Only
players invited by the CEBL will be in attendance.

'This will be an important opportunity for many of Canada's top basketball players to spend a
day working with and getting to know many of the people behind the creation of Canada's top
professional basketball league,' said Greg Francis, head of basketball for the CEBL. 'We will have
some of Canada's leading coaches on hand to conduct drills, assist with evaluation, and lead
scrimmages. It's a rare opportunity to have so many of the country's top basketball personnel in one
location.'

Assessments of players will include measuring vertical jump, sprint speed, agility, and height,
weight, and wingspan. Skill evaluation will be conducted through drill work and scrimmages. New
Era will provide all players with jerseys, shorts, t-shirts, caps, and drawstring bags.

The tentative schedule sees the Showcase begin at 10 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m., with media
interviews available starting at 4:30 p.m.

'As a league created by Canadians for Canadians to further the development of Canadian
basketball talent, more than half of each of our teams' rosters will be Canadian players,' said Mike
Morreale, chief executive officer of the CEBL. 'Our league provides players who play internationally
during the traditional basketball season with the unique opportunity to return home to play
competitively during the summer months. This serves their professional development, and at the
same time enables fans across the country to see homegrown talent perform for the first time.'

The only FIBA-affiliated professional basketball league in the country, the inaugural season of
the CEBL tips off in May 2019 and runs through August with teams in Hamilton, Guelph, Edmonton,
Saskatchewan (Saskatoon), Niagara (St. Catharines), and Fraser Valley (Abbotsford). Teams will
play 20 regular season games, including 10 at home.

Season tickets will go on sale this fall, with an announcement planned shortly that will inform
fans on how to sign up for seats with a deposit prior to the public on-sale. Further information may
be obtained at www.cebl.ca.
