We represent the high-major, mid-major, and low major college basketball conferences (NCAA Division I, Division II, Division III), NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics),USCAA (United States Collegiate Athletic Association), NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association), ACCA (Association of Christian College Athletics), NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association), CCCAA (California Community College Athletic Association), NWAC (Northwest Athletic Conference), and Independent Conferences.
In addition, we also collaborate with teams in the BBL, Pro A, Pro B, Regionalliga League, and semi-pro teams to find players who would be the best fit for their program. We also support teams who helps support players to obtain their masters degree while playing professionally.
Additionally, we fight for players who may not have completed college, experienced life changing situations, but still had the desire to play professionally.
If you don’t perform well at our showcases
Our staff understands that players may not be able to showcase all of their skills in two days; therefore, we watch players full games and highlights before and after the showcase to ensure that we understand what every player is capable of doing.
Who is this agency for?
Players who graduated college – We represent players who just completed their senior season of college basketball on any level.
Players who were overlooked – Most players are skilled enough to make it overseas even if it’s in a lower market. We do not want anyone to miss an opportunity of a lifetime due to limited resources or lack of exposure.
Players that went to a smaller school – We understand that everyone did not go to a Division 1 school, and if you did, we understand that every school does not receive the greatest exposure (ESPN, CBS, etc) to be seen by scouts.
Players who didn’t play much – No need to worry. We represent players who may not have played significant minutes on the collegiate level.
Players who got injured – We understand that unforeseen circumstances may occur such as injuries. We are committed to evaluating you at our showcases so that your injury may not hinder you from achieving your goal.
Players who didn’t produce numbers – There are some instances where players may not have produced numbers but specialize in certain areas. There may be a 7 footer out there who could contribute to a team. You never know what a team could be looking for to complete their roster.
Players who had family issues – We understand that life happens. There are several athletes who experience life and family comes first (birth of a child, marriage, etc). We are here to support you even though family issues occurred.
Players who were dismissed from their team – Even though this doesn’t look good, RTB will accept you despite what happened in the past. Some players’ personalities may not sync with a coach’s beliefs and or personalities.
Players who feel that school wasn’t just for them – Even though this is one of the toughest situations to deal with and to receive a contract, we identify every issue. Some players may not have been apt to doing homework. We understand that school isn’t for everyone but basketball could simply be their profession.
Why our showcases
We record all games that are uploaded to our YouTube channel. Recording games will allow players to analyze themselves and be utilized as a marketing tool for agents, scouts, and team owners.
Every player will be interviewed and broadcasted on our YouTube channel.
Our 3-Point Contest
We have a 3 point contest for players who desire to participate. Why? Many teams look for players who specialize in shooting the ball from the 3. This will allow 3 point shooter to separate themselves from other players who may “luck” up and have a hot game but cannot shoot the ball consistently. Having a 3 point contest will help shooters distinguish themselves from other players.
Our Dunk Contest
We have our annual dunk contest which will allow players to show us their athleticism. The dunk contest is advantageous for undersized big men who may want to prove that they can play down low but may not be able to play out on the perimeter. Additionally, the dunk contest will attract coaches, GMs, and scouts to further evaluate a player if the player is impressive.
