Idaho Stampede Relocating To Salt Lake City

Apr 4, 2016 12:00 PM

The Idaho Stampede, the NBA D-League team owned and operated by the Utah Jazz, will relocate to Salt Lake City beginning with the 2016-17 season.

The team will be known as the Salt Lake City Stars, paying tribute to its American Basketball Association roots from 1970-76 when the Utah Stars won the league championship in 1971, and to the Utah Starzz, the WNBA team based in Salt Lake City from 1997-2002. A new logo highlighting the navy and gold color scheme of the Utah Jazz with a nod to the community’s basketball history was also unveiled.

The Salt Lake City Stars will play their home games at Salt Lake Community College, located less than 10 miles from downtown Salt Lake City. The 5,000-seat Lifetime Activities Center-Bruin Arena on Redwood Road has been the previous site of the Rocky Mountain Revue NBA Summer League.

“We are thrilled to bring an NBA D-League team to Salt Lake City and in close proximity to the Utah Jazz,” said Steve Starks, president of Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment. “The Salt Lake City Stars will provide further opportunities to promote the game of basketball, extend the reach of the Jazz, and engage with our surrounding communities in new ways.”

Wolves Assign Tyus Jones To D-League

The Minnesota Timberwolves have assigned Tyus Jones to the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League pursuant to the Flexible Assignment Rule.

Jones has appeared in two games with the Wolves this season, playing a total of 14 minutes.

“Going to Idaho will allow Tyus to get some game experience at the professional level,” said Wolves general manager Milt Newton. “With our depth at point guard, we haven’t been able to get Tyus the playing time that he needs. Tyus has a great future in the NBA and this assignment will help the development of his game.”

Jones, originally selected with the 24th overall pick, was acquired by the Wolves in a draft-day trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 11.8 points, 5.6 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals last season at Duke, leading the Blue Devils to the National Championship. In the NCAA Tournament, Jones averaged 13.0 points and 4.5 assists and was named the Most Outstanding Player. He scored a game-high 23 points in the title game against Wisconsin, including making two key three-pointers in the closing minutes.
