HistoryEdit

The team was playing in the second division LegaDue as Serapide Pozzuoli when it was moved to Naples and came under the ownership of Mario Maione. After the 2001–2002 season, the club was promoted to the first division Serie A after winning the LegaDue. Basket Napoli took part in the ULEB Cup 2004-05 and won the Italian Cup in 2006.

In September 2008, Basket Napoli was excluded from the Serie A along with Orlandina Basket due to financial problems.[1] Restarting from the regional leagues, the side was dissolved in 2009.
