USA Basketball is looking to move its headquarters and training facilities out of Colorado Springs after the 2008 Summer Games.

USA Basketball, the national governing body for men’s and women’s basketball in the U.S., has issued a request for proposal to cities interested in forging a long-term partnership.

More than 20 cities have expressed interest.

USA Basketball apparently wants to consolidate its executive and training operations into a single, state-of-the-art location.

“Over the years we have been approached by various cities interested in serving as the new headquarters of USA Basketball,” said Val Ackerman, President of USA Basketball. The RFP process will help us determine whether we can forge a long-term partnership that will be in the best interests of USA Basketball, the host city and the sport itself.

Responses to the RFP are due Dec. 20. Officials plan to make a decision next summer.
