London Lions v Leicester Riders is the pick of the first round ties in the BBL Trophy.

The opening round, to be played at a one-off tie in early February, has an all-NBL clash with last season’s runners-up, Solent Kestrels, visiting Derby Trailblazers.

The competition is now set in a bracket, meaning that Solent could still repeat the 2020 final with winners Newcastle after they were placed in opposite sides of the draw.
