Yes.

1) It's only a practice basket; I don't care about playing to it or anything, just like my course to be maintained.

2) Not sure about the warranty. I'll definitely be giving a sleeve a try though. Thanks.

Got a portable, could get it to the shop. Thanks for the info.

As was said, any process would work, though I'd stay away from brazing. MIG, Flux Core or stick would be the top 3. Since you can get it indoors, MIG would be my top bet. 95% of my shop work is all MIG...faster, easier and cleaner. Just be sure to remove the galv first. MIG and galv makes for ugly welds that look like Swiss cheese. After you are done, be sure to hit the repair with cold galv to protect it. The best on the market is ZRC. The brush on version is as close to hot dip as you can get with a cold galv. Stuff isn't cheap, but well worth it if you can find it.

Even simpler solution, I took a stainless bicycle spoke (should cost about $1 or less at any bike shop) and fashioned it into a hoop. Its been working for a few years now with no problems.
