Flames to Join PBA Spring Minor League

Posted

Nisqually-based minor league basketball team Quad City Flames will be joining the National Professional Basketball Association’s Northwest Division this year for spring ball.

The announcement was made by the league in a Feb. 9 news release. The move comes as the Flames look to expand their summer league offerings and provide more lucrative opportunities to its players, franchise owner and coach Marcus “Doc” Stancil previously said. 

“They’ve got a great relationship in the community and have strong business ties to former professional players at all levels and Doc is a been-there, done-that kind of guy —as a player, coach, and team owner,” PBA Commissioner Chris Terrell said in a statement. 



The Flames traditionally have played their summer league in the Minor League Basketball Association. The team in 2019 was crowned series champions. It’s unclear whether or not they’ll continue in the league. 

Stancil previously said they were hoping to sign a contract with Florida-based The Basketball League.
