Perth Wildcats vice-captain Greg Hire said he and his teammates were looking forward to the opportunity.

“We’re based in Perth, but really, we represent WA as a whole,” he said.

“It’s going to be great to meet a lot of people who are unable to get to Wildcats games as easily as people in the city.”

The 2016 and 2017 NBL Championship trophies will be taken to every tour event.
