A Wellington consortium wants to create a second basketball team to join the Breakers in the Australian National Basketball League.

The consortium, headed by Saints owner Nick Mills, has been conducting a feasibility study into the possibility since November.

Mills says having a second New Zealand team in the competition would be an attractive option for the ANBL.

He says the criteria for inclusion in the revamped ANBL are set to be released this week.
