NBA D-League affiliations


Recommended Posts

17 of the 18 D-League teams have single-affiliate relationships with an NBA team. Of those 17, all but 5 have adopted colors that reflect their parent teams' (see similarities here).

Does anybody know of plans for the 5 NBA D-league teams that currently do not reflect their single-affiliation parent club colors to make a change?

Those 5 teams are:

- Bakersfield Jam (SUNS)

- Erie BayHawks (MAGIC)

- Idaho Stampede (JAZZ)

- Maine Red Claws (CELTICS)

- Reno Bighorns (KINGS)

Even if there aren't any plans to update, I'd be interested in seeing some recolorization concepts for those 5.

I'm betting that Reno and the others are going to stay as they are. I think Idaho would be the only one looking at a change. The Red Claws came in as a Celtics affiliate I think, so I don't think they'll change.

It would be tough to include any more green into the Red Claws identity than they already have. They picked this identity while knowing their eventual plan was to be the Celtics single affiliate, so I don't think they will be changing to green/white anytime soon. Crustacean Nation is buying their apparel too, so it seems to be working.
