List of NBPA Licensees - National Basketball Players Association Licensees

Greeting folks!

This note is written by Scott Sillcox in early 2018 in response to a lot of readers asking me two questions:

A. You wrote and posted many of your blog postings several years ago, is the info still relevant today? Short answer - absolutely! The basics of sports licensing change very little over the years, so I strongly suggest that if you are trying to learn about sports licensing, read away! I have also tried to update certain areas where there have been significant changes, so I feel comfortable in telling you that this information is still highly relevant.

B. You mention that you are a consultant and might be able to help me, do you still do consulting? Short answer - absolutely. I work in the licensing field virtually every day of my life, so if you have questions or would like my help, contact me!

Many thanks and happy reading -
Scott Sillcox


If you have been looking for a list of NBPA (National Basketball Players Association) licensees, you've come to the right place!

The thing is, until 2018 this would have been a trick question because unlike the NFL or MLB or NHL, when someone became an NBA licensee, they automatically became a NBPA licensee. It was a very efficient way of handling things - good old fashioned "one-stop-shopping".

But in 2018, the NBA and NBPA decided to split their licensing exactly the same way the NFL and NFLPA, MLB and MLBPA, NHL and NHLPA handle things - dual licensing.

But things are so new, no lists have yet been published that tell us exactly who the new NBPA licensees are. My online database at LicensedSports.net will give a starting point of NBPA licensees, but it isn't yet a complete list.

So if you are looking for a list of NBPA licensees, you might want to contact the NBPA directly and try to wrestle a list of licensees out of them.
