The first edition of Asian Professional Basketball (APB), which is similiar to the Asian Clubs Championship staged by FIBA Asia, will be played in Taiwan from August 11-19 with five teams participating in the inaugural event.
Five participants will be Niigata Albirex from Japan's BJ League, LG Sakers from Korea's KBL, Sydney Kings from Australia's NBL, San Miguel Beermen from Philippines' PBA and the home team Taiwan, which sends its national team instead of a club team.
Organizers wanted to invite the champions of Asian leagues but things did not work out as expected.
