NBA Considering G League Team In Mexico

The new 2017-18 NBA G League season kick off on Friday, Nov. 3.


A record number 26 teams will play in the formerly named D-League, which includes four new expansion clubs: the Erie BayHawks (Atlanta Hawks), Wisconsin Herd (Milwaukee Bucks), Memphis Hustle (Memphis Grizzlies), and the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario (LA Clippers).


The new campaign will also feature a number of relocated or rebranded squads.


The Lakeland Magic (Orlando Magic), Iowa Wolves (Minnesota Timberwolves), and South Bay Lakers (Los Angeles Lakers) now all have new team names or will be playing in new cities.


In addition, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants (Indiana Pacers) and Reno Bighorns (Sacramento Kings) have new logo revamps that tie more closely with their NBA affiliate club’s colors


Also, as was recently announced in the NBA, the NBAGL will no longer have any four games in five nights stretches during the season, and the number of back-to-back consecutive games has been reduced to an all-time league low.


The Nov. 3 opening night five-game slate tips off with the new-look Erie BayHawks facing the Grand Rapids Drive (Detroit Pistons) at 7 p.m. ET, and ends with the Agua Caliente Clippers making their NBA G League debut at home against the Santa Cruz Warriors (Golden State Warriors) at 10 p.m. ET.
