The Portland Chinooks are a franchise in the International Basketball League based in Portland, Oregon and owned by local businessman Terry Emmert.
Emmert, who bought the team due in part to his problems with the ABA's Portland Reign, did not escape problems with the Chinooks in his attempt to bring minor league hoops to Portland. His choice to have home games played at Portland's Eastmoreland Racquet Club created a furor among members, and forced the Chinooks to find a new venue for the team's second season (this decision was also influenced by the need for a larger venue).
The team was a strong success on the court, going 14-8 to grab third in the west. Lincoln Smith (24.1 ppg) and Kenny Tate (21.8 ppg) made the league's top 25 in scoring.
For 2006, the team reportedly pursued several venues, and played their home opener at the Rose Garden on March 12.
The Chinooks will play at multiple locations for the 2007 season.
