And there’s no doubt that Sacramento is a great market.”

He also played professionally in Australia.
“I wanted to make a successful ABA pro basketball team to create opportunities for up and coming basketball players and give them an opportunity to chase their dreams,” added Norman. “I am so fortunate to have Lawrence Thompson as my GM and a tremendous woman coach in Ruthie Bolton. We will make an impact quickly on and off the court.”
