Las Vegas will have a G League team

The G League team Ignite will move to Henderson, a suburb of Las Vegas. The Ignite team already played their home games in Las Vegas but was officially located in Walnut Creek, California, where they also practiced.

The team exists to develop young prospects in preparation for the NBA draft. It has featured three eventual top-10 picks — Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga last year, Dyson Daniels this year — in its first two seasons.

The team’s new arena, the Dollar Loan Center, is a 5,500-seat building that opened earlier this year. It also is home to the American Hockey League affiliate of the Vegas Golden Knights — the Henderson Silver Knights — and the Indoor Football League’s Vegas Knight Hawks.
