HistoryEdit

The club was founded in its current form in 2007, with the merger of Paris Basket Racing, from the city of Paris, and Levallois Sporting Club Basket, from the nearby commune of Levallois-Perret, and started to play with the name of Paris-Levallois Basket. The club retains all of the history and titles of Paris Basket Racing and Levallois Sporting Club Basket.[1]

Despite beginning in the top-tier level of French basketball, the LNB Pro A, Paris-Levallois was relegated to the French second-tier level LNB Pro B, after finishing second from the bottom in the 2007–08 season. The club returned to the Pro A at the first opportunity, by claiming the league promotion from the Pro B in the 2008–09 season. Since then, the club has played in the top tier of French basketball.

On 5 July 2017, the club's board of directors agreed to change the name of the club to Levallois Metropolitans.[2] On 4 July 2019, former NBA player Boris Diaw was announced as the club's new president, succeeding Jean-Pierre Aubry.[3]
