RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The Sacramento Kings, the Reno Bighorns and the NBA Development League today announced that the Kings and Bighorns have entered into a single affiliation partnership beginning with the 2013-14 NBA D-League season.

Sacramento becomes the record 14th NBA team to have a one-to-one affiliation with an NBA D-League team.

This partnership, also referred to as a “hybrid affiliation,” is the seventh of its kind in the NBA D-League and allows the Kings to pay for and control the Bighorns’ basketball operations, while existing local ownership in Reno maintains primary responsibility for the team’s off-the-court business operations and community initiatives.

The announcement marks the third NBA team to enter into a single-affiliation relationship this offseason, with the Miami Heat and Sioux Falls Skyforce entering into a “hybrid” affiliation and the Philadelphia 76ers purchasing the Delaware 87ers.
