Gotham Hoops is an event management company based in New York City. We showcase basketball players to amateur and pro teams. Our events host athletes before recruiters from around the world.
Gotham Hoops LLC was founded in 2009 by Ray Anczelowicz. We scouted local boy’s high school basketball players and dispersed our evaluations to men’s college coaches. Our reports helped increase the visibility of N.Y.C. recruits to national two-and-four year schools. Upon chronicling the careers of prep standouts, we recognized an opportunity to assist college seniors with pro aspirations.
The Gotham Hoops Invitational, our first-ever event, was initiated in 2014 and showcased 36 men’s college basketball seniors to fans, media and international scouts. In five years, more than 150 alumni have gone on to sign pro contracts with NBA, G League, EuroLeague and FIBA teams.
We returned to our roots in 2018 with the launch of the Inaugural Gotham Hoops Winter Classic. This event hosted 16 boy’s high school basketball teams from around the United States and Canada. In two years, more than 30 schools and 300 student-athletes have participated in this multi-day showcase.
Our mission is to help connect basketball players with amateur and pro teams around the world.
