The NBA Development League is the NBA’s official minor league. Fans can get a glimpse at the players, coaches and officials competing to ascend to the NBA’s rank.

The NBA D-League consists of 19 teams for the 2015-16 season, all singly affiliated with an NBA franchise: Austin Spurs (San Antonio Spurs), Bakersfield Jam (Phoenix Suns), Canton Charge (Cleveland Cavaliers), Delaware 87ers (Philadelphia 76ers), Erie BayHawks (Orlando Magic), Fort Wayne Mad Ants (Indiana Pacers), Grand Rapids Drive (Detroit Pistons), Idaho Stampede (Utah Jazz), Iowa Energy (Memphis Grizzlies), Los Angeles D-Fenders (Los Angeles Lakers), Maine Red Claws (Boston Celtics), Oklahoma City Blue (Oklahoma City Thunder), Raptors 905 (Toronto Raptors), Reno Bighorns (Sacramento Kings), Rio Grande Valley Vipers (Houston Rockets), Sioux Falls Skyforce (Miami Heat), Santa Cruz Warriors (Golden State Warriors), Texas Legends (Dallas Mavericks) and Westchester Knicks (New York Knicks).

Three more NBA franchises have purchased one-to-one affiliates for the 2016-17 season: the Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets and Chicago Bulls.
