The NBL is a professional men’s basketball league in China after the Chinese Basketball Association League (CBA). The two leagues do not have any direct relationship with each other. First established in 1996 as the CNBA, the NBL has evolved and developed into the current summer only basketball league (played each year from May to October) in China, with the aim of boosting city basketball development and is equally important and complementary to the CBA. The NBL is also considered to be helpful for the career development of young professional basketball players.
The NBL has been operated by Beijing Enbiou Sports Management Co., Ltd. (北京恩彼欧体育管理有限公司) since 2015 and they have appointed Quan Zhi Lan (Beijing) Sports Co., Ltd. to look after the commercial operations of the league.
