Sacramento Kings buy controlling interest in NBA Development League's Reno Bighorns

The Sacramento Kings announced they have acquired a controlling interest in the NBA D-League’s Reno Bighorns. With the purchase, the Kings now assume all business operations of the Bighorns.

The Kings become the 15th NBA team to own and operate its NBA D-League affiliate. The Bighorns and Kings have been affiliated since their inaugural season, 2008-09 season.

Four current Kings players and head coach Dave Joerger have NBA D-League experience.

On Nov. 2, the Kings will join the Bighorns for a Celebration Day featuring Kings talent in order to give fans in Reno an opportunity to connect directly with the Sacramento organization. Those interested in purchasing a season-ticket membership can sign up on the priority list at or by calling 888-91-KINGS to have first shot at securing seats before they go on sale to the public on Nov. 2.
