I can't help on specifics, but professional basketball season runs winter and spring. Better plan on staying in the southern half of the US. The northern tier or two of states have pretty unpredictable, even cold, weather through May.

The NC / GA area may be an area that you want to look into.

Trekking - The Appalachian Trail is probably one of the best known and longest hikes in the world.

Biking - Nearby (and probably crossing at places) is the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you like climbing on road bikes, it's pretty adventurous.

Rafting - White Water rafting is pretty good in NC and North Georgia.

Adventure Sports - Not sure what you mean by this other than the above. But around Asheville, NC, there's plenty of things to do, like MTB and Zip Lines.

For Basketball, NC is known for its college teams (e.g. Wake Forest Demon Deacons, North Carolina Tarheels, Duke Blue Devils, NC State Wolfpack). But nearby are the Charlotte Hornets, and, in Georgia, the Atlanta Hawks. The college basketball regular season will end in April, with tournaments in late April and March. The NBA season goes into July, but the last couple of months are the playoffs. About the only thing happening in the summer are NBA summer league, and High School AAU summer camps.
