Jazz set to announce affiliation with D-League Idaho Stampede

The Utah Jazz and the D-League's Idaho Stampede are set to announce a new affiliation on Tuesday.

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey and president Randy Rigby will join Stampede president Steve Brandes and managing investor Bill Ilett in Boise on Tuesday afternoon for the announcement.

Last season, Utah was one of five teams to share affiliation with the Bakersfield Jam, sending rookies Ian Clark and Rudy Gobert on multiple assignments with the D-League team during the season.

The two leagues, however, are working toward one-to-one affiliations across the board. And last month, the Jam and the Phoenix Suns announced a hybrid affiliation.

The Jazz now will renew their relationship with the Stampede, giving the NBA club greater control over player development and a chance to grow its fan base in the area.

The deal will make the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, currently associated with 13 NBA teams, the only D-League club with a multiple-team affiliation.

The Jazz previously teamed up with the Stampede in 2006-07 and 2011-12.

The Jazz were affiliated with the Albuquerque Thunderbirds in 2005-06, the Utah Flash from 2007-11, and the Reno Bighorns during the 2012-13 season.
