The Saskatoon Slam were a professional basketball franchise based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, that played in the National Basketball League in 1993 and 1994. The team played its home games at Saskatchewan Place. In the NBL's single full season, 1993, the Slam captured the league championship. They defeated the Cape Breton Breakers three games to one. All the games were played in Saskatoon to reduce travel costs. The Slam returned for the 1994 season, but the league folded on 9 July that year.
