Justin Bieber could soon be sitting courtside with the Harlem Globetrotters – he's been invited to join the legendary basketball team at their exhibition games.

The 16-year-old has previously proved unpopular with sports fans – he was booed by spectators when he attended a New York Knicks match at Madison Square Garden in the Big Apple earlier this month.

However, rival team the Harlem Globetrotters have now stepped in to offer the teenager the chance to become a Junior Globetrotter and sit on the bench during their games, as well as meet the basketball stars.

Bosses have also asked Bieber to sing the U.S. national anthem when the Globetrotters visit Madison Square Garden later this month, according to the New York Daily News.

A spokesman tells the publication, "(Our fans) certainly will not boo him."

We wonder if the Biebs will take them up on their offer. It sounds like it'd be fun!

Tonight is the premiere of Justin's movie, Never Say Never. You can watch a live stream of the purple carpet here starting at 5pm PST. We'll also be on the carpet, so stay tuned for our exclusive coverage.
