Because fans already have their favourite teams in Spain and i don't think they would never switch "faith" to a new local-american team. Philippines is a bit too far.
In London, instead, there's no top tier bb team, it's a huge city and a huge market, larger than any Canadian city left, it's relatively close to america and they share the same language.

But i don't see it happening anyhow.
