Massive Problem

Despite basketball surpassing baseball in fan popularity and participation, the NBA only drafts 60 players each year. Baseball drafts 1,200 players each year and have over 14 minor leagues and 206 teams in operation across the US, Dominican Republic and Canada. The NBA only has 60 teams total.

There is a lack of true competitiveness in the professional basketball league outside of the NBA.

For teams that want to prove they are the best, they have nowhere else to go.

Enter United States Basketball Network.

One Incredible Solution

We're creating a new structure for access in professional basketball and will be able to definitively provide a metric of ‘best’ professional basketball team outside of the NBA. We are creating a way for advancement into bigger, better, more competitive leagues/events.

It is highly addictive, entertaining and engaging for fans and attractive to be able to take a team from ‘the farms’ to ‘the big leagues.’ There is no other system where you can be rewarded for being the best and winning the most games.

The USBN’s United States Basketball Championship invites only the best teams nationwide to compete in a fair tournament-style league, which results in naming the best professional basketball team in the US, outside the NBA.

The USBN will serve as their year- round coverage of basketball and the USBC provides a platform nationwide with many followers that is now attractive to future sponsors and advertisers.

Why We’ll Lead

We will organize events to control quality and ensure a top-notch fan base experience.

We will also provide more coverage and a better game day experience and allow teams to grow their fan base.

We are a first and one-of-a-kind history-making basketball network that will change how the sport is structured in the United States.

Think of it as the tiered structure of professional soccer/football in Europe.

The USBN is also providing more opportunities for basketball players and those who don’t want to have to go overseas.

Meet The Team

Brian, “Caz”, Caswell | CEO & President
Caz was an above average basketball player and played all four years in high school and went on to play basketball at LaGrange College on a basketball and academic scholarship.

When Brian’s playing days were through, he became a successful banker and entrepreneur, and then his heart strings were tugged when opportunity struck and he had the chance to work in Augsburg, Germany for the Topstar Kangaroo Professional Basketball Club.  Brian was involved with player development, scouting, coaching, and marketing for the club.  Brian also met and learned from several other great clubs like FC Bayern München and Ratiopharm ULM.  The time and experience while in Germany gave Brian the insight and knowledge on how the international sports world worked and allowed him to be able to draw upon the different pros and cons of our ways in America versus International.

With the passion for basketball burning greater than ever and all this new knowledge, Brian returned to his home state of Georgia and launched the Kangaroo Sports Club.  A club similar to the international model he had learned while in Europe.  The Club’s first sport and team was Professional Basketball team, Georgia Kangaroos in which Brian is the head coach and owner.

Quickly Brian saw the difference and challenges for his team in the US versus teams in Europe.  The idea and solution became the United States Basketball Championship (USBC).  Brian’s next challenge was to create the United States Basketball Network (USBN).  A true award and tiered system.  The concept is that our top athletes/teams of the USBC will have the opportunity to play in the NBA’s G-League for the following season.
