The Reno Bighorns are a NBA Development League team based in Reno, Nevada that began play in the 2008-09 season. The Bighorns home game venue is at the Reno Events Center. Their namesake is the Desert Bighorn Sheep, the state animal of Nevada. Their NBA parent club is the Sacramento Kings, a hybrid affiliation beginning with the 2013-2014 season.

Two previous Reno basketball teams were named the Bighorns; one from the defunct Western Basketball Association and one from the Continental Basketball Association which played for the 1982-83 season. The team colors of green, tan, and blue are designed to be an allusion to nearby Lake Tahoe.[1]
