Minor league basketball team coming to Wichita

Local Sports

If baseball isn’t your thing, Wichita is getting a Minor League Basketball Association team called the Wichita Wizards. It will be part of the Red River Conference.

KSN reached out to the owner of the MLBA on Monday. He said once the team is set, players will be playing from April through July. The venue of the team hasn’t been announced.

Organizers want to keep this all local. Their coaches are from the area and they want to be able to give players a second chance to showcase their talents.

The idea for the league is to help jump start someone’s career. Games will be recorded so players have a chance to send their footage to agents and coaches overseas.
