Mexico City to debut G-League team in 2021-2022

G League Mexico

The NBA’s G-League will now have its first Latin American team. The Mexico City Capitanes are a professional basketball team in Mexico that will now join the G-League for at least five seasons. They will begin their G-League tenure playing in the United States, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

It is unclear as of now which NBA franchise will be tied to the new G-League team. As of now, they are just joining the developmental league to add competition and drum up interest in Latin America and Mexico especially.

The Toronto Raptors also were hamstrung by travel restrictions last season, being forced to play their games in the United States. Due to vaccination rates not being high enough to halt the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, a new bubble league will likely be planned next season.
