Idaho Stampede signs single affiliation with Portland Trail Blazers

September 26, 2012

In May, Idaho's Development League basketball team, the Idaho Stampede, agreed to go steady with the National Basketball Association's Portland Trail Blazers--a trend changing American professional basketball. With the announcement comes a much closer relationship between the two teams. The Trail Blazers will manage Stampede players and games at CenturyLink Arena, which allows Portland to help players grow in Boise before snapping them up for the big leagues. According to Stampede staff, fans will see a "much-tighter game." nba.com/dleague/idaho
