History

The WBA was conceived in 2004, with seven teams scheduled to play. One of these, the Chattanooga Majic, did not start the season, and was replaced by the Bristol Crusaders.

The WBA consists of players with 5 years or less experience and each team is limited to 2 players with 5 years on their final 10 man roster. The WBA holds that the window of opportunity for NBA hopefuls is 3 years.

The WBA exists to prepare players to play in the CBA, NBA D-League, NBA, and international scouts.
