Elite Pro Basketball is India’s first-of-its-kind 5x5 Pro Basketball League featuring 12 teams filled with rosters of top-level Indian players. The Jaipur Giants has signed former Indian National Team player and current Indian Railways player, Prakash Mishra, as their marquee player, and have also drafted Rajat Shrivastava and Samuel Gali, among others. The league is organized by Elite Sports India (ESI) and is scheduled to begin matches as early as January 2023.

Mr. Brown said: “The Elite Pro Basketball League is a natural destination for India’s best university players. And hopefully the very best will come to the Jaipur!”
