Eurobasket would like to announce the dates of this year's Eurobasket Summer League. Eurobasket has made some changes with the sites from last year to ensure eligible basketball players every chance of being seen by scouts. This year's ESL's will have scouts at every destination. According to ESL director, Chris Warren, 'we have directly placed ESL sites in places where NBA and European scouts will already be going. For example, we will run a summer league 4 blocks away from the NBA Summer League in Orlando, Florida the week they will be hosting the Summer League. Also, we will run the Las Vegas ESL during the Vegas NBA Summer League right next door, 40 feet away in the next building. I wanted to change the dates and locations that made sense to be where the action was and where the scouts are'. The Treviso ESL will be held at the same time as the Treviso Euro Camp as many coaches from Europe and NBA will be in attendance. There is absolutely no way that there will be any other camps in the United States or Europe that will be able to compete with what Eurobasket is doing. Eurobasket will be where all the scouts are going each and every camp we have this year.
Eurobasket is very excited this year to announce the Portsmouth ESL to be run at the same time of the Portsmouth Invitational. Portsmouth brings in as many scouts, team owners, gms, coaches and agents as does the Las Vegas NBA Summer League and eurobasket wanted to be there. Eurobasket will be inviting the top 80 players in the nation from NCAA division I, II, III and NAIA as well as having a free agent team. There will be no doubt that this ESL will be a huge success and will ensure players that may have been overlooked by PIT to get their chance to be seen. Along with these camp sites there will be ESL's in Indianapolis, Charlotte and a women's ESL in Indianapolis.

Chris Warren, president of Warren Sports International, located in Indianapolis, Indiana was appointed manager of the Eurobasket Summer League by Marek Wojtera of Eurobasket. Chris will assume the duties of overseeing the summer league immediately. Chris Warren is currently in negotiations with several sites where ESL will be located in summer of 2012. Thus far it looks like we will be holding the ESL in these cities: Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Atlanta, New York and Italy. The summer league in Italy is being planned as a replacement for the traditional Treviso Summer League that is no longer running. Chris Warren has stated, 'that we are very excited to be holding the summer league in Forli, Italy and we are working with team officials from Fulgor Libertas Basketball Club of Forli, Italy where the summer league will be run. I have always thought that a location such as this where coaches can come to a central location in Europe during the summer which happens to be a very nice vacation spot, would be great place to hold a camp of summer league. We feel like this will be something that will be very promising for years to come.' Also, there will be a Coaches clinic held at the Forli, Italy location and the Indianapolis, Indiana location at the same time as the summer league. According to Chris Warren, John Spezia will be responsible for the organization of the coaches clinic as well as assisting with other duties with each summer league. Both John and I felt that with the amount of coaches that we plan on having at each event, why not hold a couple of coaches clinic so that coaches can pick up some new strategies from each other as well as top level players.' Lastly, there will be a women's Eurobasket Summer League held during the final four for women in Denver this spring of 2012. 'Were very pleased and excited that we have a dynamic new manager with proven leadership, diverse interests and a strong background. Chris has the passion not only for basketball, but has strong organizational skills as well. Chris is a true basketball man, energetic and engaging, he is ideally suited to marshal the talent to maximize the potential of the Eurobasket Summer League as a world leader in professional basketball players acquiring jobs in playing overseas or stateside, said Marek Wojtera, Sports IT director of Eurobasket. According to Chris Warren, most camps during the summer are held as moneymakers for agents who cannot attract the coaches nor can they get jobs for their players. Therefore, these agents or camp coordinators benefit monetarily on the hopes and dreams of these aspiring players trying to get a contract professionally. The ESL will have high level players, agents, scouts, pro gms and coaches who will all be looking for talented individuals to sign.'
