Posted July 11, 2013 on AP on Fox
The Sacramento Kings are taking over basketball operations of the NBA Development League's Reno Bighorns under a new shared partnership between the two teams. Bighorns owner Herb Santos Jr. will remain in control of business operations in Reno as part of the agreement announced Thursday. The move will allow the Kings to groom players and coaches - and oversee roster moves - in an affiliation similar to minor league teams in baseball. The partnership is the seventh of its kind between NBA and D-League teams. The Kings and Bighorns have been tied together since Reno's inaugural season in 2008-09. Last season, Reno also was affiliated with the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz. New affiliates for both teams will be announced later this summer.
