League commissioner Willie Marcial confirmed the development in an interview with former PSC commissioner Noli Eala in his Power and Play program on Saturday.
"Sinusubukan din natin, tignan natin kung maibabalik natin ang Bay Area dito sa conference na 'to. Two conferences lang kasi eh," said Marcial.
Details still need to be ironed out for the Dragons to make their PBA return.
"Ang concern lang dito ay kung magkakasundo tayo with the team, kung magkakasundo 'yung mga proseso, kung okay sila sa mga kondisyon natin," Marcial explained.
"Maraming factors pero ... katulad ng Bay Area, gusto ring bumalik. So aayusin natin 'yung imports, 'di na pwede 'yung dalawa," he added.
Dragons head coach Brian Goorjian earlier expressed his intent to enter a domestic league soon.
“A local league whether it’s the CBA (Bhinese Basketball Association) or the Philippines, that’s the local competition. Our team provides not only a local, and that’s the selling point, we are also involved in the international competition which is the EASL,” Goorjian said.
“We are all waiting where we are going to and who are we playing. We are very excited,” he added.
