Enjoy 5 Days and 17 Games of Great Basketball Action!
The NBA Development League, founded in 2001, is the NBA’s official minor league. Featuring 17 teams with direct affiliations to NBA franchises, it is a proven developer of talent of coaches, referees, and front-office staff for the NBA and its teams.
Conceived prior to the 2004-05 season, the NBA D-League Showcase presented by Samsung Galaxy provides an opportunity for NBA D-League players and coaches to perform in front of key NBA decision makers over five consecutive days at one location. For the third consecutive year, Reno will host basketball operations executives from all 30 NBA teams who attend games scouting top young NBA prospects.
During and immediately following last year’s event, four players earned GATORADE Call-Ups to the NBA, including eventual NBA champion Jarvis Varnado of the Miami Heat. During its nine-year history, more than 30 NBA D-League players have earned GATORADE Call-Ups from the NBA D-League to the NBA during or immediately after the NBA D-League Showcase; while an even larger number benefited from the exposure afforded them at the NBA D-League Showcase.
