BBL logoMVP magazine have revealed that the Manchester Giants and London Leopards will be joining the British Basketball League, starting from next season.

The magazine is also reporting, that its league source has confirmed that two other applications to join the BBL were rejected. The teams that have missed out are the Reading Rockets and London Nassa, whose applications weren't considered strong enough.

MVP Magazine's BBL source was quoted as saying that, “Leopards and Manchester just had good presentations...Leopards now have good people involved and Manchester have Jeff Jones who’s been around the league...But the other two don’t have good venues and their presentations were weak.”

We'll look forward to seeing the Giants and Leopards in the BBL next season.
