The NBA Development League and Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment announced today that 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 the city’s American Basketball Association roots from 1970-76, 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 Jazz with a nod to the community’s basketball history was also unveiled.
