The Sacramento Kings will relocate their G League affiliate from Reno to Stockton. The franchise will also change their name from the Bighorns.

The Kings have been affiliated with Reno since 2008.

Stockton is a 45-minute drive from the Golden 1 Center compared to a two-hour drive through a mountain pass to Reno.

“With the addition of NBA G League Basketball in the Central Valley, each of California’s NBA franchises have a powerful asset within an hour of their headquarters to help develop their players and expand their fan bases with elite professional basketball at an affordable price in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere,” NBA G League President Malcolm Turner said.
