Ahead of the 2016/2017 season of the Nigeria premier league, the Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF has given wild-card to two former premier league sides, Police Baton and NAF Rockets basketball clubs to make up the eight teams in the Atlantic conference.

Both clubs who failed to gain promotion from the 2016 National Division-One championship held in Abuja last November were awarded the wild-card based on past pedigree having lost out to Hoops & Read basketball team in the national division-one championship.

Both sides will now join Nigeria Customs basketball club of Lagos, Rivers Hoopers basketball club of Port Harcourt, Delta Force of Asaba, Kwara Falcons of Ilorin and Oluyole Warriors basketball club of Ibadan.
