The Idaho Stampede was an American basketball team in the NBA Development League, based in Boise, Idaho. They played their home games at the Ford Idaho Center in nearby Nampa from 1997 until they moved to CenturyLink Arena in Boise in 2005.

The team relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah for the 2016-2017 season to become the Salt Lake City Stars.

History[edit]

The team was founded as a member of the Continental Basketball Association in 1997 and was league runner-up in the 2003–04 season, losing to the Dakota Wizards. After the 2005–06 season, the Stampede announced that the team would be joining the NBA Development League. The Stampede's sole NBA affiliate is the Utah Jazz, with whom they originally had a hybrid partnership. However, on March 24, 2015, the Utah Jazz and the Idaho Stampede announced that the Jazz had purchased the Stampede, becoming the 8th NBA team to become owners of their D-League affiliate.[2] They also had past affiliations with the Denver Nuggets, Seattle SuperSonics, Toronto Raptors and most recently the Portland Trail Blazers, with the Jazz taking sole affiliation after the 2013-2014 season.[3][4] In the Stampede's first D-League season, the team won the Western Division title, tying for the best record in the league.

On April 25, 2008, the Stampede defeated the Austin Toros, 108–101, in Game 3 of the D-League finals. It was the first title in team history in either the CBA or the D-League. Ever since they lost to the Austin Toros in the 2009 NBA Development League Playoffs, they've never returned to the playoffs, with a 70-80 record for the past three seasons. Earlier in the season, in January 2008, the team had hosted the annual D-League Showcase, in which all the league's teams played two games each in a five-day period.[citation needed]

Move to Salt Lake City[edit]

Shortly after the Jazz bought the Stampede, rumors abounded about the team's relocation to Orem, Utah to be closer to the parent club; coincidentally, Orem was home to the (D-League's Utah Flash from 2007 until 2011 (the team now plays in Newark, Delaware as the Delaware 87ers). These rumors were not far off, as on April 4, 2016, the Jazz and the D-League announced that the Stampede would relocate to Salt Lake City for the 2016–17 season and would be renamed the Salt Lake City Stars.[5]
